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.

NEST has appointed Clive Elphick, Martin Turner, Mutaz Qubbaj and Chris Hitchen as trustee members of its reshaped board.
