“But we believe this is just the opening of the floodgates,” said Ambery. “Having seen enquiries about master trusts double over the last few months we are fully expecting a surge of movement into them when the restrictions are finally lifted. Businesses will be making decisions to help their continued success and survival and it would be a sensible move for employers to consider.“Moving to a master trust can help bring down costs as we head towards economic difficulties from the fallout of the pandemic.”He said the anticipated surge could easily last through o the end of 2021.In March Vodafone and Fujitsu announced they had moved their DC plans to the Willis Towers Watson Lifesight master trust.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?

Hymans Robertson has said it expects a big rush by employers to move their defined contribution (DC) plans to master trusts as the UK begins to ease lockdown and employees return to work after temporary unemployment.The consultancy’s expectation is based on having seen a doubling in the number of enquiries into making the shift to the multi-employer schemes in the past few months.This comes on top of “a good flow” of schemes making the move during lockdown, according to Michael Ambery, partner and head of DC provider relations at Hymans Robertson.He said analysis by the consultancy showed master trust membership had increased by at least a third during the last three months and commitments to shift assets to master trusts had risen by over £4bn (€4.3bn).
Athletics anti-doping officials have launched an investigation into what IAAF president Lord Coe called “serious allegations” about world champion sprinter Justin Gatlin’s coach and an agent.The Daily Telegraph said an agent linked to Gatlin, Robert Wagner, offered to “illicitly supply performance-enhancing drugs” to undercover reporters.And it said Gatlin’s coach, former Olympic gold medallist Dennis Mitchell, told reporters that athletes are able to get away with doping because the drugs they use cannot be detected by tests.Both deny the allegations.The paper said the journalists had posed as representatives of a film company wanting to make a sports film who were looking for a coach to train their star to look like an athlete.The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) – set up by athletics world governing body the IAAF – and the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), said they had opened an investigation into the claims. “Investigations stemming from tips and whistleblowers play a critical role in anti-doping efforts,” Usada said in a statement. “We are presently coordinating with the Athletics Integrity Unit in order to investigate these claims fully.”As with all investigations, we encourage individuals with information to come forward as an important tool to help protect clean athletes. Importantly, individuals are innocent unless and until the established process determines otherwise. It’s only fair to let due process occur before jumping to any conclusions.”Lord Coe said: “These allegations are extremely serious and I know the independent Athletics Integrity Unit will investigate in accordance with its mandate.”American Gatlin, 35, who has served two doping bans, won 100m gold at August’s World Championships in London, beating Usain Bolt in the Jamaican’s final individual 100m race before retiring.Gatlin’s legal representatives said the sprinter had sacked Mitchell and said he had more than five years’ worth of official drugs tests to show “he has never tested positive for any banned substance”, the paper reported. In a statement to the Daily Telegraph, Mitchell said: “I never suggested in any way that any of my current athletes used any banned substances or that I was familiar with training any of my current athletes with those substances.”Wagner told the paper: “I wasn’t involved in doping. Obviously, I played along because I knew what was going on. I had to get them hooked.”
