Next week is pensions week: DWP, PPF, IFS, OECD
It looks like we could be in for a busy week on pensions next week.
We’re expecting the DWP to publish the outcome of its auto-enrolment review, probably on Monday 4th.
Then on Tuesday 5th we are expecting not one but two chunky pension reports:
The Pension Protection Fund will be publishing the 2017 edition of its Purple Book, a comprehensive review of the state of health of the UK’s final salary schemes, including:
- Investment performance
- Membership stats (will we see evidence of increased transfer activity as members cash out to take advantage of pension freedom?)
- Scheme demographics
- Asset allocation
The IFS in conjunction with the OECD will be publishing ‘Pensions at a Glance’ looking at:
- Pension freedom
- Investment risk
