Charges, returns and transparency in DC - what can we learn from other countries?

The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) is today publishing 'Charges, returns and transparency in DC: What can we learn from other countries?', a report that explores UK charges for pension schemes against those in the US, Australia, the Netherlands and Sweden. The report is sponsored by Which?.

The report finds that UK pension defined contribution (DC) fund charges are generally towards the lower end of those in the countries studied - they are competitive with those in the US and cheaper than those in Australia. And whilst Dutch and Swedish DC charges to scheme members look competitive, overall they are typically more complex with additional administration fees, in the case of the Netherlands, paid for by the employer.
