Pension funds worried about fund transparency

Many pension fund investment decision makers are concerned that there is not enough transparency in the funds they invest in, research indicates.

Research among 200 individuals found that 77% of them had transparency concerns while just over a quarter were not confident about the level of transparency to do with operational costs incurred by manager.

Oliver Jaegemann, global head of AMX, an institutional asset management platform which carried out the research, said he was not surprised by the concerns over transparency and other issues the survey pointed to because the investment management industry model was “completely outdated”.

“When compared to the rate of technological change in other industries, the institutional investment industry has been virtually stagnant over the last decade,” he said.

The other findings were that over 80% of the decision makers were concerned about cost efficiency and over 70% were worried about time wastage.

AMX is operated by the investment consultants Willis Towers Watson.
