Was DC ever easy? If that ever was the case, those days are long gone. The DC agenda is busy and complex: on top of day-to-day scheme administration, trustees have to address increasing regulation of scheme governance, meet statutory quality standards and navigate changing rules on accessing pension savings which have major administrative and tax implications. 

The pace and volume of change has never been greater. Having the right advice on side is more important than ever. We’re here to help you make DC stress-free. We have designed DCHQ to give you a resource base, providing up-to-the-minute insight on a wide range of current issues, with practical tips from our experts about the implications for your scheme.

After a major upheaval to the pensions landscape in 2014/15 with the introduction of the pension freedoms, the focus of the DC world has moved on again, to wider issues raised in the 2016 DC Code and elsewhere, including protection mechanisms for members’ DC assets, cybersecurity and data protection. You’ll find resources on these pages to help you with all these current issues – but you can still go ‘back to basics’ and read our briefings on the April 2015 pension freedoms.
