In the late 1990s and early 2000s the regulation and accounting of pensions in the UK changed, the effect of the Minimum Funding Requirement (MFR) being softened and FRS17 being introduced. This has had a major effect on the sterling-denominated interest-rate markets. Please submit sites about pension regulation in the UK, including sites about MFR, FRS17, and official consultations about changes in regulation. Also submit sites about the effect of the preceding on the sterling-denominated interest-rate markets.
