Independent research has been commissioned to find the views of business leaders in the UK: the ICAEW and Mercer have teamed up to explore the views of CFOs, FDs and other senior finance executives on pension risk management.

The report, Living with Defined Benefit Pension Risk, has found that high levels of defined benefit (DB) pension scheme deficits are preventing UK companies from investing in their business.

57% of those interviewed said that DB pension schemes will have a negative impact on the financial performance of their business over the next three years. Quantitative Easing (QE) was also pointed to as  among FDs’ greatest concerns.
