MPs demand measures on pension costs

MPs have given pension funds a ‘few weeks’ to come up with a proposal covering how they plan to be more transparent about their investments and costs.

Earlier this week, the financial services regulator AFM said pension funds are spending between €1.5bn and €3bn more in investment costs than noted in their annual reports.
