Your Quarterly Pensions Update Q3 2019

Welcome to our third Quarterly Update for 2019. We’ve only just said goodbye to British Summer Time, we thought we’d be saying hello to the post-Brexit era, but instead we’ll be wrapping tinsel around our polling cards as we head out to vote in the upcoming General Election. Anyone for a surprise Christmas gift?

You would be forgiven for thinking that there is no other news, and hoping that extensions, flextensions and even political tensions would melt away in the snows of winter … but regardless, the pensions world continues to turn and we’ve compiled our list of topical pension articles from the last quarter.

Inside you’ll find details of the new CMA requirements for trustees to engage with investment consultants and fiduciary managers and an update on your favourite subject (next to Brexit!) – GMP Equalisation. We also look at the ‘legacy’ that is RPI and the anticipated move to CPI. Should there be a professional trustee on every scheme? We look at both sides of the debate. And as if that’s not enough, we’ve got an investment market update, news from the Pension Scams Industry Group and PRAG, a summary of the TPR and PPF Report and Accounts and information on changes to Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs).   

You can’t vote for your favourite, but we do hope that you enjoy reading our take on the latest industry news.
