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?
