The FSA and the Pensions Regulator have jointly produced 'A guide on the regulation of work place contract-based pensions' (the Guide). The Guide sets out the respective roles of the two regulators in relation to work place contract-based pensions. According to the Guide there are three main types of work contract-based pensions and these are:

  • Group personal pensions.
  • Group self-invested personal pensions.
  • Group stakeholder pensions.

The Guide sets out useful case studies which explain how the FSA and the Pensions Regulator will deal with different scenarios. It also contains a table which summarises the roles played by each regulator in relation to the different activities associated with work place contract-based pensions.
