Pensions in 2016 - Six things to watch

This year will be memorable. There will be political drama from November's US presidential election and sporting excitement in June and July with the UEFA European Championships in France and August's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. 2016 also promises to be another eventful year in pensions.

In this briefing, we look at six big issues that will drive the pensions agenda in 2016. We also suggest what, if anything, you need to think about or start doing to be as prepared as possible.

It will be an important year for Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co (WLG). Early in the year, WLG and Gowlings, a leading Canadian law firm, are joining forces to create a new international law firm called Gowling WLG. While the name is changing, the current WLG Pensions team will remain the same.

We will carry on working with you to achieve the best results. We will also have a wider range of international pensions expertise within the firm and deeper experience of pension plan investments in certain areas, such as direct infrastructure investments. We look forward to helping you make 2016 as successful as possible.

Read on for our round-up of the pensions issues to watch in 2016:

  1. Budget 2016 and the future of pension taxation
  2. Referendum on UK membership of the European Union
  3. Introduction of The Pension Regulator's new DC Code and related guidance
  4. Interest rate rises and the impact on pension plan finances
  5. Financial Advice Markets Review
  6. End of DB contracting out and the introduction of the single tier state pension
