Atkin trustees, actuaries, consultants & administrators

Current issues - December 2015

TPR Guidance on Integrated Risk Management: this is intended to help trustees and sponsors of DB schemes to work together to establish a proportionate and integrated approach to risk management taking into account the impact on funding (contributions), investment and the strength of sponsor covenant together. It stresses a need for a proportionate and scheme-specific approach, and contains numerous examples to help illustrate the ideas discussed and the sorts of thought-processes that the Regulator advocates.

PPF Purple Book – Current DB trends: to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary of publication this includes a look at trends over the last ten years

New PPF Entry Rules: the Government proposes to extend the entry rules to employers who are excluded from having an insolvency event in the UK.

Scheme Returns due soon: More questions have been added which may require additional information or work to be carried out. Some of these questions are optional and therefore Trustees will need to discuss with their advisors whether answering these questions offers the Scheme value for money.

Regulator publishes draft revised DC Code: what is proposed is an updated and streamlined Code of Practice for trust-based occupational defined contribution (DC) pension schemes, including defined benefit schemes with money-purchase AVC facilities. By setting everything out in one document and focusing on what the Trustees are obliged to cover in their annual governance statement it should make compliance more straightforward. As will the promised ‘how to’ guidance
