Pensions Regulator sets out its new approach to DB funding

Our viewpoint

Today the Pensions Regulator launched an important first consultation on how it intends to regulate DB funding when it gets new powers that are set out in the Pension Schemes Bill. 

In this News Alert we summarise and comment on its contents.  From this you will see that whilst for some schemes the actual impact is likely to be limited, for others our expectation is that the new regime could lead to requirements for much higher deficit repair contributions, lower risk investment strategies, and companies having to pay lower dividends as a result.
