    There is an unprecedented amount of change to the pensions framework at present and it is a huge challenge for trustees and employers to keep up to date with all developments.

    Our Winter 2014/15 Hot Topics highlights some of the many issues currently affecting employers and trustees, including:

    From April 2015:
    • changes to statutory transfer rights;
      • new trustee duties to check that members have received “appropriate independent advice”; and
      • charge capping and Defined Contribution governance legislation.
    • The latest on the PPF, pension scams, automatic transfers and the abolition of contracting-out.
