Are pension investment managers responsible?

New research has revealed how responsible investment managers are being with their customers' savings.

The independent charity FairPensions surveyed the biggest 29 investment managers in this country to find out just how much information each company make available to the public on the investment decisions that they make and why.

There were some very mixed results. F&C Asset management scored 95% when it came to telling the public what they are up to but Invesco Perpetual, for example, scored a grand total of zero.

The list was drawn up after the government launched the new Stewardship code for companies. It tests openness and engagement when it comes to investing in companies.

Louise Rouse is director of investor engagement at FairPensions and she told the BBC it is vital for people to ''get on top of what's happening with their money''.
