Here is a round-up of the pensions blogs and briefings that we have posted during the past month. Some of these have been broadcast but several have not, to avoid sending you too many emails.
Recent blogs and briefings
In this podcast, we interview Ashley Hamilton-Claxton, Head of Responsible Investment at Royal London Asset Management, to find out what impact the introduction of new ESG requirements for UK pension schemes a year ago, is having on the way pension schemes and asset managers assess and manage ESG risks. We also discuss the new requirement for schemes to prepare an implementation statement on voting, engagement and (for DC schemes) ESG risks, which applies from today and the DWP’s latest consultation on introducing additional requirements, initially for the largest schemes, to address climate-related risks.
Join us for our upcoming webinar, Pensions regulation – the new normal? at 10.30am on Wednesday 4 November in which we will be considering how the Regulator’s approach to pensions regulation needs to change in light of Covid-19. Our partners Samantha Brown and John Whiteoak will be joined for this discussion by Steve Webb, partner at LCP and former Pensions Minister.
