The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is currently seeking views on unlocking investment structures in the Defined Benefit (DB) pension space.

The government would like to explore investments into start-ups, infrastructure and other private equity and long-term investments. This has been dubbed “productive finance”.

DWP would like to hear from the pensions industry, especially DB schemes and their sponsoring employers, and other stakeholders who can offer an informed perspective on how DB schemes engage with ‘productive finance’ in practice and how that could change.

This is a particularly niche consultation; however, you may have some views as someone with an interest in DB pension offerings. If so, we would encourage you to look deeper into this call for evidence and respond with your views.

This call fort evidence closes on 5 September 2023.
