“So, Mr Chief Executive, we really like what your company is doing in relation to environmental improvements and we’re pleased to see you’re working effectively towards your net zero climate change pledge. It’s also encouraging to see your positive policies on diversity across all aspects of your business. But what are you doing to make your pension fund more sustainable?”
Jonathan Watts-Lay outlines key considerations for pension scheme members looking to access their pension early, and what employers and trustees can do to help.
This is the final essay in a series of six produced by the PMI’s Master Trust Innovation Workstream. The other essays looked at what we expect a good Master Trust to look like in certain areas in five to ten years’ time. This essay draws on those themes and looks more widely at what is needed from a regulatory and supervisory perspective.
With auto-enrolment now well established, membership of the occupational pension schemes and Master Trusts that we work with will be more diverse than ever. The challenge for the pensions industry is to consider how to reflect that in our approach, both on trustee boards and as advisers.
Each will have its own hurdles to overcome when it comes to improving diversity and inclusion, but with inaction no longer feeling acceptable from a cultural, moral or legal perspective, what can the industry do to ensure it is representative of its savers?
Barnett Waddingham’s recent survey of UK private sector pension trustees – ‘Top Pensions Risks - 2020 Vision’ - found that board diversity was ranked as one of the lowest concerns, with almost half of the respondents saying this was a minimal risk. Only 14% rated diversity in the top 3 risks for their scheme.
The PMI’s DC Master Trust Group was established to help overcome barriers to offering a good service to members. As part of bringing the group together, the decision was made to include not just Master Trust providers but representatives to the supply chain. The delivery of good services requires many different components to work together in harmony. Without bringing together the component parts, we would not be able to work towards overcoming the barriers.
