"However, we are more cautious about any further downward pressure on the charges cap on default funds as focus will shift to achieving the lowest cost as opposed to the best outcome for members. To maintain the balance of value for money against product choice and innovation, the legislation should aim to ensure that a full and competitive marketplace is allowed to grow."
The rating agency comments "The competitive environment across the reinsurance sector as a whole and in Lloyd's key lines of business in particular, is increasingly unfavourable. Although the market's recent operating results have been strong, surplus capacity, the inflow of new capital, and changing buyer demand mean that we anticipate continued negative pressures on profitability and revenues in Lloyd's core business sectors: reinsurance and specialty lines. A number of smaller syndicates will face particular challenges in maintaining their market share, in our opinion. As a result, we consider an upgrade to be unlikely in the near future, and have therefore revised our outlook to stable."
Alistair Wilson, Zurich's Head of Retail Platform Strategy stated, "These findings show that work still needs to be done to simplify how we refer to share classes and make it consistent for everybody involved – fund managers, providers and advisers. What one provider refers to as a clean share class, may represent a bundled one for another, which may result in unexpected tax liability for clients."

There are, however, many interpretations of what Smart Beta actually means and why it makes sense. At HSBC Global Asset Management we firmly believe in the future of alternative indexation as an important investment approach and this year we are delighted to sponsor the NAPF's Smart Beta Made Simple Guide, which we hope will go some way to providing more clarity and understanding into this exciting area." Tim Hames, Director General of the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA), sponsors of the Private Equity Made Simple Guide, commented:...
