Government fires starting pistol for collective DC schemes

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) published a consultation on implementing collective defined contribution (CDC) schemes which closed on 16 January. This came following a request from Royal Mail for UK legislation to be amended to allow CDC schemes.
