Tideway sees ‘major spike’ in DB transfer business

In a 53-page consultation paper, Proposed Changes to our Pension Transfer Rules, the FCA said: “Our general presumption is that transfers from DB schemes to DC arrangements are unlikely to be in consumers’ best interests.

“However, we accept that there may be a limited number of circumstances where a valid case for transferring can be made – for example, where a consumer has a limited life expectancy.”

The watchdog is consulting on measures including a requirement that all transfers advice be carried out or checked by a specialist.
