UK - The Transport & General Workers' Union hit out at plans to levy schemes to pay for the Pension Protection Fund.
General secretary Bill Morris said the proposals would exacerbate the problems faced by schemes.
He said: “To place the burden of insurance payments on the shoulders of the pension fund is like taking blood from a body that needs a transfusion.”
Standard Life has increased exposure to risk assets in three out of five funds in its Active Plus and Passive Plus workplace pension ranges.
Some 48% of employers are unaware of the services or help they offer to members of their defined contribution (DC) schemes, according to Aon.
Welplan Pensions has triggered its exit from the master trust market, with just a few days to go until The Pensions Regulator's (TPR) application deadline.
