Barnett Waddingham - FTSE100: banking sector leads the way in diminishing DB deficits

As FTSE100 companies report an overall pensions deficit decrease of £22bn, we delve deeper to understand what this means for the FTSE100. In 2017, the four major high street banks reported no pension deficit for the first time since our report was launched in 2001 - with an average funding level of 111% and an aggregate surplus of almost £15bn. Our research shows this is due to good investment returns over the year, supplemented by further contributions made by the banks to reduce deficits. Overall, the FTSE100 deficit stands at £5bn, a decrease of £22bn from the previous year. In contrast to the banking sector, the largest deficits came from Oil and Gas sector.

The emergence of some new entrants into the market over the remaining part of the year will also help further boost the level of competition amongst providers.
