Governance of Defined Contributions Investments

 

DC (Defined Contribution) pension schemes’ investments are subject to increasing regulation and legislation.  Our experts will ensure that your scheme complies and follows all the relevant best practice.

 

It’s vital that your DC pension scheme has appropriate governance measures to cover issues including risk assessment, sensitivity and management.  Here are some of the issues that impact upon how your scheme deals with its investments:

  • Myners’ Principles

A framework to improve investment governance and decision-making (established in 2001 and updated in 2008).

  • Investment Governance Group

This group will issue a set of guidelines (extending the Myners’ Principles) that will apply to all DC schemes on a ‘comply or explain’ basis.  The group is chaired by The Pensions Regulator.

  • The Pensions Regulator

Governance issues are becoming increasingly important to The Pension Regulator’s statutory objectives.

  • FCA (Financial Conduct Authority)

All investment activity is regulated by the FCA.  Our experts can help you ensure that your scheme is following best practice and that its governance complies with all the relevant guidelines and legislation.
