Pensions & benefits

LCP Vista 2
our investment view

Keeping you informed with our latest investment thinking

It’s been another few tumultuous months in the pensions world. We’ve seen yields fall once more to new record lows; we’ve got a new pensions minister; the FTSE100 has finally surpassed its 1999 peak; and we’re now living in a world where a DC pension isn’t really a pension at all. There’s more change on the horizon too – with annuitants potentially getting the right to “sell” their pension.

So how should pension schemes respond?

In this edition of LCP Vista we take a look at some investment ideas and thoughts that help to answer this question.

In this edition

  • Macro-economic outlook - Is low the new normal?
  • Traditional consulting vs fiduciary management - Getting the best of both
  • Second-hand annuities - A better match than bonds?
  • New DC flexibilities - Are providers doing enough?
  • Protection strategies - Safeguarding your investment returns
  • Bulk annuities - Lower pricing on the horizon?
