Sunday Times: Clouds gather over minister Regina Doherty as pensions industry rages


According to the Irish Association of Pension Funds, the minister risks taking a one-size-fits-all approach with an EU directive that was drafted primarily for large schemes.

“There are pension schemes in other European countries that have more assets than the entire Irish system, or more members than our population,” said the association. “It is appropriate that the levels of oversight and risk management that apply to those will be very different from those that apply to the average Irish scheme.”
