According to the pioneer Director-General, PenCom, Muhammad Kabir Ahmad, the launch of Retirement Savings Account Transfer System, by PenCom, is expected to trigger competition among pension operators.
The expected competition would arise as pension contributors and retirees would seek to align with PFAs with good rate of return, robust return on investment and first class service delivery.
Ahmad had urged operators not to compete on market share but on how to grow the pension sector.
