CBI welcomes clarity on pensions regulator’s statement


The CBI has responded to an announcement by the Pensions Regulator that it will issue a statement in April setting out its stance ahead of the valuation and recovery plan process for defined benefit pensions. This will help trustees to understand its expectations within the current economic conditions, it said, and it plans to publish a similar statement each year.

Jim Bligh, CBI Head of Pensions policy, says: “It is good to hear the regulator making clear to trustees ahead of negotiations that affordability to employers needs to be central to funding defined benefit pensions.

“In the current economic environment, employers and investors need to know their pension scheme will not harm their ability to grow the business.

“Ultimately, the best form of protection for scheme members’ benefits is having the backing of a solvent employer.”
