Committee looks into the hidden costs of pensions

05 December 2018

The Work and Pensions Select Committee questions representatives of pension schemes, asset managers and advisers, as well as the co-author of a trade union report on pension cost transparency.

The Committee will be looking into what has been done recently to increase transparency of pension costs and charges, and whether these measures go far enough. The Committee has previously heard concerns that asset managers provide opaque information, leading to widespread lack of understanding of fees and poor outcomes for pension scheme members.

The Committee is conducting an inquiry into Pensions Costs and Transparency to examine whether the pensions industry provides sufficient transparency around charges, investment strategy and performance.
