  • Progress made by providers in ensuring scheme members are enrolled in appropriate, well-governed pension schemes, which offer good value for money and low charges.
  • The impact on providers, and on auto-enrolment, of the new pension flexibilities and the introduction of shared risk and collective schemes.
  • Adequacy of the guidance guarantee

Further sessions

The Committee plans to hold two further evidence sessions for this inquiry, provisionally scheduled as follows

  • Wednesday 17 December at 9.30am: Regulators
