UK - A qualitative review of Myners's investment principles will be published by the department for work and pensions this autumn.
Work on the second part of the review – a quantitative survey – is under way and will be released early next year.
The two-part review will clarify whether the government is likely to introduce legislation to enforce the adoption of the principles outlined in the report by former Gartmore chief Paul Myners.
Pension schemes have unanimously slammed the idea and point out a new raft of legislation will derail the government’s plans for simplification.
Their opposition was backed up by independent surveys by Watson Wyatt, Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow and Mercer Investment Consulting.
And earlier this year the NAPF claimed 76% of scheme had already implemented or were taking steps to implement the principles.
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.
This week's top stories include the government spending £800,000 on a Gogglebox advert and MPs writing to The Pensions Regulator about its engagement with the Railways Pension Scheme.
