Aon DC Monthly – June 2018

In our last update we told you about The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ sponsored research into the behavioural aspects of pension scheme decision-making, which Aon is supporting. You can read more about the initiative here. The research ultimately aims to further expand our understanding of how pension schemes are invested and managed.

This month, we’re giving trustees an opportunity to be part of this important industry initiative by participating in the next phase of the research. This time, it’s quick (10 minute) experiments which we think the trustees among you will enjoy.

In this update, we also share our thoughts on how to achieve better DC investment performance as well as our article on the importance of shared engagement on workplace pensions outcomes, which was published recently with The Times newspaper.

Take part in an experiment!

In this next, exciting phase of research we launch the first of a series of quick fire 10-minute experiments from City, Leeds and UEL Universities, involving multiple choice questions and scenarios aimed at trustees. We’d love you to take part.

Achieving Better Investment Performance: Time to Delegate?

Aon plc

In our 2017 DC Scheme Survey, twice as many respondents than in 2015 said that the time and resources required to run a DC plan was a reason to move governance structure. Trustees’ time is a scarce resource that could be better focused on setting scheme strategy and driving member engagement, rather than making investment implementation decisions. In this paper, we discuss some of the challenges and what a solution might look like.

Why workplace pension outcomes depend on shared engagement

Aon plc

Outcomes delivered by employer pension schemes depend more than ever on levels of engagement, so companies must create good quality schemes and successfully communicate their benefits. Read more in our article from The Times Workplace Pension Report published earlier this year.

We hope you find the above interesting. If you have any questions or we can help with anything then please get in touch.

Kind regards
