The Pension Schemes Act 2021 (the Act) brought with it a raft of new offences, both criminal and civil, as well as extended informationgathering and interviewing powers, to enable The Pensions Regulator (TPR) to fulfil its “clearer, quicker, and tougher” mantra.
We know that not everyone finds the idea of a trustee effectiveness review appealing. Many feel such a review will take up time that could be better spent dealing with scheme issues, and the prospect of a list of improvements for busy trustees is not attractive. However, a periodic review of how trustees are operating collectively will be time well-invested and is an essential requirement for a well-run scheme.
In an ever-changing landscape for institutional investors, there is an industry-wide acknowledgement of the increasingly important role that responsible investing has to play in managing a well-diversified portfolio. More and more fiduciaries recognise that the incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk factors can materially impact portfolio risk and return, as well as help bring the portfolio into closer alignment with an organisation’s mission and broader goals. With that, investors want to ensure they are investing responsibly and integrating ESG factors into their portfolios appropriately. The difficulty for some that are at the start of this journey lies in knowing how and where to begin.
The consultation on The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR’s) new Code of Practice closed on 26 May.

I am sitting in the sun at my favourite café writing this piece. Finally, life’s getting back to normal. Despite the changes wrought by COVID-19, there are some constants. For example, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is still on a mission to ensure that the boundaries of advice and guidance are well deﬁned. It recently joined forces with The Pensions Regulator (TPR) to publish some dos and don’ts in this area. The aim is to give clarity to trustees on what they can and can’t do in terms of providing guidance and support around ﬁnancial decision-making.
