Pensions Regulation, Compliance and Governance

The regulatory landscape is constantly changing and evolving. As pension schemes attract greater scrutiny from stakeholders and wider society, good governance is essential to managing and mitigating risks.

In recent times, an increasing number of risks have emerged, impacting all aspects of scheme management. From retroactive issues on GMP, to forward looking uncertainties on ESG and climate change, schemes need to be agile to develop and enact strategies.

Regulation has been equally fast to develop, with the Pension Schemes Act 2021 causing a paradigm shift. All the while, financial reporting remains as crucial as ever to bring transparency to stakeholders.

Scheme data

Data has become a prominent commercial priority for many schemes in recent years, driven by the upsurge in risk transaction activity and the need to complete exercises that are affecting the whole industry, such as GMP equalisation and getting ‘dashboard ready’. However, many trustees and companies are finding that such exercises are subject to long waiting-lists, due to a need to improve the quality of data conflicting with general resource constraints on third party administrators to undertake business as usual activity. We have a specialist, complementary and independent solution to this for pension trustees.
