DWP pension consultation – deadline 16 July

bubbles-and-sun-istockFor those wishing to respond to the current DWP Pension scheme trustee consultation, which will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the way DC schemes view SRI/ESG/Impact investment, here is the link to the current consultation:

‘Consultation on clarifying and strengthening trustees’ investment duties’.

Occupational Pension Schemes (Investment and Disclosure) (Amendment) Regulations 2018

In brief, my view is that their proposals are very positive.

In an ideal world I would love for the DWP to be able to call for stronger pension scheme requirements, but I recognise that they must work within the confines of the where we are today.

To check out their proposals and respond to their consultation please go to this link.
