Legislative reform triggers environmental shock and pension funds are required to develop strategies to deal with such change. This research seeks to answer the main question whether pension funds are ready to embrace the major compliance requirements proposed under the Financial Institutions and Markets Bill (FIM Bill). Therefore, the research objective is to develop a qualitative model to help pension funds prepare for the proposed legislative changes.
