    Proper use of "despite"

    Dear Teachers

    It's about the use of "despite" in the following sentence, should I either add "the fact that", or remove "are"

    Despite [should I add: "the fact that"] market participants and relevant parties [should I remove "are"?] are studying the feasibility of various withdrawal methods of the accrued benefits, MPF scheme members should always plan in advance before making any withdrawal decision.

    Regards

    Anthony the learner
