New guidance documents added to the Pensions Authority website

Friday 9 December 2016: The Pensions Authority has published two guidance documents in relation to investment issues for trustees of Defined Benefit (DB) schemes.

The first document sets out the Pensions Authority's view of good practice in setting the investment strategy of a DB scheme.

The second guidance document sets out the Pensions Authority’s view of good practice for trustees of DB schemes in preparing and maintaining a Statement of Investment Policy Principles (SIPP).   Included in this guidance is a sample SIPP which illustrates the Authority's view of good practice in relation to the contents of a SIPP.  The Pensions Authority asks trustees to note that in publishing this illustrative sample, the Pensions Authority is not endorsing one particular approach to the preparation of a SIPP.
