Commenting on The Office of Fair Trading’s Defined Contribution Workplace Pension Market Study

19th September 2013

Commenting on The Office of Fair Trading’s Defined Contribution Workplace Pension Market Study, Gina Miller, founder of The True and Fair Campaign and co-founder of SCM Private said:

“We welcome the OFT’s recommendations for improving the quality of information available about DC pension schemes and are particularly encouraged by its recommendation that DC pension costs should be disclosed in one single number.

The OFT rightly concludes that competition cannot be relied upon to drive value for money and we have no confidence at all that the industry will deliver value and transparency without regulatory intervention to force change and safeguard consumer rights.”
