DB Surplus Consultation & Public Consolidator: Exploring the Potential 

View our video where we focus on the UK government's consultation on DB pension scheme surplus and the public consolidator.

James Brundrett, our Head of Intellectual Capital, and Leanne Johnston, our Head of Funding & Benefits, explore the implications & potential impact for trustees & sponsors.

The figures quoted for the amounts of available and refunded surplus, as well as the possible market size for the public sector consolidator, are based on DWP’s consultation document and the PPF’s public sector consolidator design document .
