DC scheme investment in illiquid and alternative assets
The Government has recently consulted on the ways to enable Defined Contribution (DC) pension schemes to invest a higher proportion funds into illiquid and alternative assets as there are potential benefits associated with these assets. However, there are cost, operational, governance and regulatory barriers which prevent some DC schemes from exploring investment in illiquid and alternative assets. This report sets out the potential challenges and discusses how they may be overcome.
