star this property answer text <p>​As made clear alongside Troika partners (US and Norway) on 4 June, we condemn the violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan this week, which left many civilians dead or injured. The UK calls for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected, the resumption of the political process with the protestors and the opposition, and an agreed transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people, in a swift, orderly and peaceful manner. On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of violence against civilians by the Sudanese authorities.</p> more like this

As part of remedies to improve this, the FCA has set new requirements for pension providers to send more frequent ‘wake-up packs’ to their consumers, which include a summary of their open market options.</p><p> </p><p>The Money Advice Service (provided by MAPS) also offers a guaranteed income product comparator tool and is developing a drawdown comparator tool, to make it easier for consumers to compare the different options available to them.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the regulator of pensions decumulation products, including drawdown products.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA conducted the Retirement Outcomes Review into the retirement income market, publishing the final report in 2018. The final report particularly focused on investment choices and charges in drawdown. As a result of its findings, it is introducing or consulting on a number of remedies to protect consumers from poor outcomes and promote competition in the market. These include the introduction of investment pathways and a requirement for consumers entering drawdown to receive clearer information on charges. The FCA is also currently consulting on extending the remit of Independent Governance Committees (IGCs) to investment pathways.</p><p> </p><p>As the remedies will be a significant intervention in the drawdown market, the FCA plans to conduct a detailed review of the impact of investment pathways one year after implementation to consider how well the remedy is working.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Pension dashboards are a priority for this government and ensuring they are delivered in the interest of consumers is of the upmost importance to us.</p><p> </p><p>That is why the Money and Pensions Service will convene an industry delivery group to oversee the development, delivery and governance of dashboards. On 3 June 2019, the Money and Pensions Service announced that Chris Curry from the Pensions Policy Institute will be the Principal of the industry delivery group, the most senior role within the group. As the Principal, he will identify and agree who in industry will sit on the delivery group to ensure they are best placed to deliver dashboards for the benefit of the consumer. The industry delivery group will be made up of stakeholders from across the industry, consumer groups, regulators and government.</p><p>Once the industry delivery group is up and running, what we expect to see from them in 2019 is to:</p><ul><li>create a roadmap for delivering the supporting architecture;</li><li>start to work with industry on agreeing data standards and schemes readiness to provide data and;</li><li>design a robust governance and security framework.</li></ul><p>In parallel we expect industry to start creating and testing consumer facing dashboards. This will help determine what information is necessary and show how it can be presented in a meaningful way that best meets the needs of the consumer. The industry delivery group must carefully consider how and when the first live dashboards are promoted to consumers.</p><p>We also set out in the government’s response to the consultation on pensions dashboards, the ten design principles which the industry delivery group must adhere to when designing the dashboard system to help ensure the privacy and security of individual’s data. These include that the system must comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation and that the system must not include a central database.</p>
