UK - Most workers want their pension fund investments to go to firms with strong social, ethical and environmental policies, a new study shows.
More than three out of four workers say they would want their money purchase providers to shun companies on socially responsible investment grounds.
And 83% believe financial service providers should encourage companies take social, ethical and environmental issues seriously.
The study by insurer Friends Provident also revealed that 20% of respondents were unaware that investment funds put their money into firms irrespective of corporate policies.
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.
