Latest news for life insurers and pension providers
We are consulting on guidance on what we expect from firms when advising on pension transfers and conversions, particularly from defined benefit schemes to defined contribution schemes.
Our rules include reducing the conflicts of interest created by current charging structures and enabling firms to give high quality advice, creating a more sustainable market for the long term.
