With automatic enrolment finally underway, and plans in place for a single-tier state pension designed to provide a solid platform for private pensions saving, what will be the next phase of pensions reform in the UK? The government’s ‘defined ambition’ agenda outlines one possible vision for pensions policy, including options for introducing risk-sharing into defined contribution provision. But what does the future hold for defined benefit pensions? Is the DB funding model sustainable? Is the role of pension funds as institutional investors more important than ever?
This conference will explore these issues and help trustees navigate the regulatory, investment and stewardship issues that they face.
The event is also a valuable networking opportunity to meet fellow trustees, trade unionists and pensions and investment experts to share information and experience.
