Pensions & benefits
for pensions 2019
With the FTSE 100 maintaining their pension accounting surplus, it is time for companies to embark on the next stage of their pensions journey.
For the first time in two decades, 2018 saw the aggregate FTSE 100 in pensions accounting surplus throughout the whole year. Large contributions and reducing levels of pensions risk mean that members’ benefits are safer than ever before. This is good news. Coupled with future regulatory changes, it is important for companies to now build on this and develop a journey plan to secure their pension scheme that is appropriate and fair for all stakeholders.
Maintaining the IAS19 surplus and reducing the level of pensions risk within pension schemes are both positive steps for sponsors. Companies will now want to set out on the next stage of their pensions journey to develop a long term strategy and plan to secure their pension scheme in a stable and capital efficient way
