PLSA responds to work and pensions committee report

21 December 2016

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association has today (Wednesday) responded to the Work and Pensions Committee report on defined benefit pension schemes. 

Joanne Segars, Chief Executive, Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, said: 

“We are pleased to see that the Committee shares our view on the potential value of consolidation. 

“As the Committee recognises, creating consolidators is a complex task where the details matter. We are actively investigating the pros and cons of the spectrum of consolidation options including an aggregator fund or funds model. 

“We will be publishing our recommendations in March. We look forward to working with the Committee, Government and the Regulator to make consolidation a success.”
