The Aon MasterTrust receives authorisation from TPR
The Aon MasterTrust received authorisation from TPR with effect from 5 August. We believe the authorisation process has brought necessary and positive rigour to the DC market. For Aon, it enables us to help DC scheme members to better plan for their retirement – not just through consideration of their pensions savings but by aggregating the full range of their finances. Learn more about the Aon Mastertrust.

As a result of the authorisation regime mentioned above, we expect to see an increase in consolidation among existing master trusts. In this article, first published in Employee Benefits, Tony Pugh explores the implications for employers and members.
