FACING THE TRANSPARENCY CHALLENGE

Regulatory scrutiny of cost transparency is growing for
all participants in the Pensions industry, with further
obligations due in 2018.

Governance bodies have a duty to savers to closely
monitor costs, confirm their investments are operating
effectively and ensure that value for money is being
achieved.

Asset Managers are increasingly expected to produce accurate, granular cost data quickly and reliably for their clients, while Investment Consultants face calls to improve their transparency within the industry.

Understanding costs fully allows accurate identification
of areas for optimising cost management, central to
helping maximise returns to members.

Costs and charges remain widely unknown,
misunderstood, and/or undisclosed, leading to a sense
of them being mysterious and complex but this need
not be the case.

Transparency around the full costs of running and
managing a scheme can enable better decisionmaking,
strengthen governance frameworks and help
with achieving long-term sustainability.

WHY DOES COST TRANSPARENCY MATTER?

TRANSPARENT COST REPORTING 
PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN ANY SUCCESSFUL PENSION SCHEME GOVERNANCE APPROACH. COMBINED WITH A SCHEME’S RISK AND PERFORMANCE REPORTING, IT OFFERS A COMPLETE OVERVIEW AND PUTS
SCHEMES IN CONTROL

  • Accurate visibility of total costs within schemes
  • Scheme representatives need to make informed decisions which can lead to improved outcomes for scheme members
  • Ability to demonstrate governance control and efficiency to scheme members and sponsor
  • Improved ability to demonstrate transparency and communicate with scheme members and clients
