UK - The £120m Selfridges Retail Pension Scheme has moved its asset allocation away from equities and ended its contribution holiday.
Selfridges has resumed contributions at 16% of salaries following a fall in its fund surplus from £18m three years ago to £3m. T
The scheme has also revised its asset allocation with a move away from equities.
Selfridges finance director Peter Williams said: “A year and a half ago we had already moved to a position whereby we had a 55 to 45 split in favour of equities, so we had increased the bond allocation. We have now moved it again to 50%.”
PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte must break up their consultancy and audit businesses into distinct firms to provide greater focus on the "most challenging and objective audits", the competition watchdog has said.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its first batch of guidance setting out how the guaranteed minimum pension (GMP) conversion legislation may be used to resolve unequal payments.
