What do you need to do to prepare? Are you ready? We talk you through the process in 12 easy steps, reflecting on the ICO’s guidance and discussing the issues specific to pension schemes.

Dave Poulton, Head of Client Services - L&G & Frankie Borrell, Business Development Director - L&G
Dave and Frankie will examine pension scheme data in the context of de-risking through a bulk annuity. They’ll examine why data is so vital to insurance providers, what are the key things insurers look for and when is the best time to undertake a review of your pension scheme’s data as you approach the insurance market. Their talk will also cover data considerations following a successful transaction and how any interaction with your members is effectively managed.

Rather than discuss data generally, they will focus on key areas where good quality data management enables trustees to reap the benefits of improved member service, communication and engagement. At the same time this can reduce operating costs, errors, and the risk of fraud, as well as removing key barriers to objectives such as liability reduction programmes.
