In The Month In Pensions for December 2020, Ian Chapman-Curry focuses on the key trends and developments that will dominate the world of pensions in 2021. With a backlog of legislative, regulatory and policy developments, 2021 promises to be a busy year for anyone working in the pensions industry.
The Pensions Schemes Bill 2019 – 21 will see changes to the funding regime for defined benefit pension schemes along with giving The Pensions Regulator more powers. It will also provide the statutory framework for pensions dashboards and collective defined contribution schemes.
But 2021 will be about more than primary legislation. The Pensions Regulator will be updating its codes of practice as it moves towards a single code, environmental, social and governance issues will continue to be a trend, with an increasing emphasis on climate responsible investing and the government will tackle discrimination issues in public sector pension schemes.
With so much going on, we've brought together ten key trends covering the most important issues that will dominate agendas and work streams throughout the year. Make sure that you stay ahead of the curve with our guide to pensions in 2021.
