In Sight

Our quarterly summary of pensions issues covers government consultations on scheme funding regulations and DC investment regulations, an update on pensions dashboards; and a round-up of other news.
In Touch – Pension Dashboards Regulations Published
The Pension Schemes Act 2021 provides a framework to support pensions dashboards, and in particular gives new powers compelling schemes to provide information. The regulations to put these provisions into place have now been published.
On The Horizon
To help with planning, our On the Horizon summary provides a reminder of some of the key legislative and regulatory developments expected over the coming year.
Aon Research – DC Today
DC Today is our new bi-monthly poll, collating insights on how DC pension schemes and their members are reacting to the fast-changing economic environment. Consisting of just five questions - all with multiple choice answers, this poll should only take 2-3 minutes to complete. Take part and receive the report once the results have been collated.
Aon Research: Pension Schemes Act New Regulator Powers – 1 Year on
We are now one year on from the introduction of the criminal offences and enforcement powers, and we would like to understand what preparatory actions trustees and companies have taken in response. We would also like to understand whether these powers have changed trustee or corporate behaviour. Take part in our survey here.
