Transfers to DC Master Trusts – trips and traps


The popularity of DC Master Trusts is on the rise following the introduction of the authorisation regime and the ever-expanding requirements for DC governance.

It’s not all plain sailing though – there are a number of trips and traps that can arise for pension scheme trustees who are considering or implementing a transfer to a Master Trust. So, what do trustees need to consider when carrying out such a transfer?

In this session, we focus on the key investment issues that arise on transfers to Master Trusts, including:

  • Impact of market volatility on timing, transition costs and pre-funding arrangements
  • Issues arising in a scenario where funds in which the transferring scheme is invested are suspended
  • Investment fund mapping and what qualifies as a “default” arrangement
