Event Details

 

"What is the true purpose and potential of the pensions industry?"

This very special Transparency Symposium is dedicated to a question of fundamental importance to the pensions industry: what exactly is its purpose and potential?

The idea for the event was wholly inspired by a talk given by David Pitt-Watson, Executive Fellow of the London Business School, at an event run by the St Paul's Institute and Finance Innovation Lab; David delivered a highly impactful and thought-provoking talk that showed so clearly the wisdom of establishing purpose as a bed-rock for thought leadership and policy-making. 

The symposium will be particularly interesting to those that hope and believe that the pension capital markets could, and should, become a 'force for good' for our planet and society as a whole; as well as enabling the efficient provision of financial security in old age. 

This is a not-to-be-missed event if you are in any way interested in the development of a more progressive and enlightened approach to pensions policy-making and believe that Socially Responsible Investing and Environmental, Social and Governance factors are important.

As Tracy Blackwell, Chief Executive of Pension Insurance Corporation put it so brilliantly recently:

"It's hard to lose your way as an industry if you focus on the why!"

Perhaps it is possible for the pensions industry to formulate an over-arching vision statement articulating what it aspires for its purpose to be?

Could such a vision statement help to guide and steer pensions policy?

Maybe it would to create a sense of collective purpose amongst pension professionals?

We are hopeful that this event will help to galvanise support for the idea that the pensions industry could become a key driver for improvements on many fronts that are of such grave concern to so many. This conference will be used to share insights on this most-vital of all topics and if all goes to plan delegates will have the chance help build consensus on how the pensions and investments industries accept their responsibilities moving forward.

There will be fantastic presentations and panel sessions - here's the programme:

Please click on Order Now above to secure your place without delay.

Enormous thanks to Pension Insurance Corporation for hosting the entire event; without their support the conference would not be possible.

You can access a very worthwhile paper on the topic of 'Purpose of Finance' written by David Pitt-Watson and Dr. Hari Mann and produced by Pension Insurance Corporation here:

The Transparency Task Force

...is the collaborative, campaigning community dedicated to driving up the levels of transparency in financial services, right around the world.

We believe that higher levels of transparency are a pre-requisite for fairer, safer and more efficient markets to deliver better value for money and better outcomes to the consumer.

Furthermore, because of the correlation between transparency, truthfulness and trustworthiness, we expect that our work will help to rebuild trust and confidence in financial services, for the benefit of consumers, market participants and the efficacy of government policy.
