FTSE 350 DC Pension Scheme Survey 2018

Defined Contribution
N/A

September 18, 2018

Willis Towers Watson’s 2018 report looking back at the defined contribution pension journey over the last 10 years and also ahead to some new directions of travel.

This is the thirteenth edition of our FTSE DC Pension Scheme Survey, and the fourth to include the FTSE 350.

In this edition, we have looked back at the defined contribution (DC) pension journey over the last 10 years, and also look ahead to some new directions of travel.

Many organisations have made, and continue to make, significant changes to their DC pension arrangements. Although organisations are at different stages in the journey, for leaders in DC pension provision, current developments can be summarised as follows:

  • What’s ongoing – reacting to pension freedoms
  • Current focus – review of the delivery vehicle and ensuring that the plan design is compliant with (fully implemented) auto-enrolment rates by 2019
  • New directions – a focus on member support and engagement, and interest in wider financial
    well-being initiatives

We believe this survey report gives the clearest representation of DC pension provision in the UK. Whilst the results are based on information from some of the largest publically-quoted companies in the country, they are relevant to any employer with a DC pension arrangement. Using our extensive database, we are able to benchmark and compare DC schemes by industry sector, size and type of scheme.

If you would like further information, please speak to your usual Willis Towers Watson consultant, or contact Richard Sweetman directly using the information to the right.
