The Pensions Regulator joins UKRN as a full member

The UK Regulators Network (UKRN) has today announced that The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has joined the network as a full member. The move will help UKRN and its members to increase their understanding of this financial area which will improve consumer outcomes across the sectors its members regulate.

Jonathan Oxley, CEO of UKRN, said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming TPR as a member. Collaboration is at the heart of the UKRN and we look forward to the insight and experience TPR will bring to the network, and to working with them to ensure consumers, including pensions consumers, are well served.”

Charles Counsell, CEO of TPR, said:

“We are very pleased to be joining the UKRN this year and look forward to collaborating with, and learning from, network colleagues. TPR’s aim is to drive participation, protection, accountability and confidence in workplace pensions and our membership of UKRN will allow us to explore and influence the broader strategic context we work in and actively contribute to improving regulation for the UK economy as a whole.”

The Pensions Regulator protects workplace pensions in the UK. It works with employers and those running pensions so that people can save safely for their retirement.

The UKRN brings together regulators from the UK’s utility, financial and transport sectors for the benefit of consumers and the economy. Established in 2014, the network works together to share knowledge, explore cross cutting issues and build better ways of working.

UKRN now has thirteen members, listed below.
