UK - Punter Southall has launched an internet-based research service which shows how FTSE100 schemes are coping under FRS17.
The tool will compare and contrast the liabilities and performance of schemes on a global, sector or year-end basis.
Punter Southall principal David Cule said: “The prospect of new international accounting standards and a wider concern over corporate governance issues means the disclosure of pension cost information is becoming increasingly important to companies and their shareholders.”
This week's top stories included Cardano announcing plans to acquire Now Pensions from a Dutch pension fund later this year.
Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) faces a £102m impact on liabilities as a result of equalising guaranteed minimum pensions (GMPs), according to its annual results.
