I have received the following press release from Bradshaw Dixon & Moore:
"Actuarial firm Bradshaw Dixon & Moore has launched a research project to study attitudes to offsetting pension values in divorce. In the first phase, practitioners are invited to participate in an anonymous five-minute on-line survey.
The survey consists of four different case studies and participants are asked to say what values they would consider appropriate for offsetting, depending on whether they are advising the husband or the wife. As there is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that the approach to offsetting values differs across the UK, the survey is designed to identify any regional trends.
BDM plan to publish the survey results and analysis to encourage informed debate on the subject. All practitioners with an interest in this area are invited to participate in the survey, which can be accessed from BDM’s blog site at www.ancillaryactuary.co.uk."
