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

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