LONDON (Reuters) – Regulating consultants who advise pension funds would ensure greater focus on managing risks which can emerge from the sector, such as recent difficulties with liability-driven investment (LDI) funds, the Financial Conduct Authority said on Monday.

“Perhaps if their advisers had been more sensitive to dealing with levels of stress like this, some of that risk would have been managed more effectively,” FCA CEO Nikhil Rathi told parliament’s Treasury Select Committee.
