Updated Guernsey Pensions Regulations

The Guernsey Financial Services Commission (“GFSC”) have released the third version of the pension regulation rules; their official title is the Pension Scheme and Gratuity Scheme Rules and Guidance, 2020 (“the 2020 Rules”). When they come into force on 31 December 2020 they will supersede The Pension Licensees (Conduct of Business) & Domestic and International Pension Scheme and Gratuity Scheme Rules (No. 2) 2017 (“the No. 2 Rules”).

Guidance notes have also been added, providing examples of how licensed fiduciaries could demonstrate compliance with the rules. These guidance notes do not form part of the rules and appear in shaded boxes to distinguish the guidance from the rules.
