The Pensions Regulator has recently released a summary of its latest scheme return data. In its summary, it notes that the number of active members in DC arrangements has surpassed those in DB arrangements for the first time. The Regulator attributes this to the impact which automatic enrolment has had on the number of new pension scheme joiners. It was also noted that there has been an increasing move away from "micro DC schemes" to larger DC schemes, which the Regulator notes is likely to have a positive impact on the value for money received by members.

A summary of the scheme return data can be viewed on the Regulator's website here.
