How do you know whether your decision-makers have provided the best options under the Mandatory Provident Fund Scheme (MPF) for your employees? We can help.
Since the pension element is a key component of your employee’s total rewards, managing an MPF scheme for your employees takes more than initial selection of providers and leaving it all to that third party to safeguard your staff’s retirement pot. The MPF system is coming of age with 20-year track record, and all employers should check when they last reviewed their providers’ performance. Individual MPF accounts are accumulating to sizeable amounts and be a meaningful contribution to your employee’s retirement wellbeing, and employers should be sensitive to the discrepancy in performance of the best and worst investment options. According to a statistical analysis of accrued benefits held by scheme members of MPF schemes, the average MPF account has around HK$150,000 in it and more than 50,000 individuals have HK$1million in MPF assets.
As an employer, you need to look at the bigger picture of the performance of your current pension design and benchmark against the industry. Based on our experience with companies like yours, we can provide details of contributing rates, vesting scales and so-on, to help you design the right benefits package as well as communicating these benefits to your employees. After all, what’s the point of providing excellent retirement and pension packages if your employees aren’t aware of what it means for them?
