UK pensions/superfunds: the crunch bunch
The outlook has deteriorated far more seriously for weak sponsors with underfunded schemes. Schemes whose employers remain solvent will simply demand more money, reducing the dividends to shareholders. The cost is typically one-fifth more than the accounting value of a fully funded scheme. New pension superfunds may offer a cheaper solution. The government has a pandemic-induced pension problem - the triple lock on state benefit, which underpins increases in state pensions.
