New investment guidance for DB scheme trustees


Today we published guidance for trustees of defined benefit (DB) pension schemes on maintaining an effectively governed investment strategy and meeting standards expected under our DB code of practice. It includes examples of approaches and factors to consider when investing scheme assets to fund defined benefits. 



Trustees are responsible for their scheme’s investment governance arrangements, including determining its investment strategy, that are appropriate for their scheme’s circumstances, including their level of complexity.

Why data is the new oil in the digital economy

Good quality data is essential for pension schemes. In her guest blog, Margaret Snowdon, chair of PASA, calls on trustees and administrators to improve their data, not just because TPR will now be asking questions about data on the scheme return, but because it can save the scheme money in the long-term. She also underlines the importance of schemes being ready for the Pensions Dashboard, when providing members with information about their savings will become compulsory. 


Consultation on professional trustee fines 

Last week we launched a consultation on a draft monetary penalties policy, which included a revised description of a professional trustee and the amount they should be fined for breaching the law. This consultation is part of our 21st Century Trustee initiative, which seeks to raise standards of governance and administration by being clearer about what we expect trustees to do, and being swifter to take action where standards are not met. Read and respond to the consultation by 9 May 2017. 
Help for trustees and savers in the fight against pension scams

We are supporting trustees and helping savers spot the danger signs of a scam in a range of new resources as part of our scorpion campaign, which include a new video, online scam-spotting tool and five step guide. Our website also contains key information for trustees and administrators, including guidance on due diligence and a scheme transfer check list to use whenever a member requests a transfer. 

Eight more master trusts get independent assurance

In the last six months, eight more master trusts have obtained master trust assurance and been added to our list of schemes with assurance.


The framework allows trustees to obtain independent assurance that the controls they have established around their key systems and processes are in place and effective. In addition to obtaining independent assurance, we also carry out a number of checks relating to the scheme, including how tax relief is explained in member communications and other potential regulatory risks.


Some schemes on the assurance list are not open for small and micro employers; to help those employers through their automatic enrolment journey, a separate TPR list shows schemes with master trust assurance which are open to all employers.
