Here is the latest edition of our regular Pension Disputes Bulletin which contains summaries of key cases, Ombudsman decisions and regulatory activity and highlights emerging risks for pension schemes, providers, sponsors, administrators, and other service providers.
In this edition, we cover the implications of:
- a recent judgment on the operation of a scheme’s forfeiture rule
- a recent judgment on the scope for trustees to adopt a Paris-aligned investment strategy
- the new Consumer Duty
- a recent Ombudsman determination on discretionary pension increases, and
- proposed changes to the UK’s data protection laws.
If you have any queries about any of the cases or other developments covered in this bulletin speak to your usual HSF adviser or contact a member of our pension disputes team:
