Pensions Age Great Western Conference

PMI CPD: This event attracts up to 7 PMI CPD hours
The Pensions Age Conference is coming to Bristol. Following strong demand from our readers, Pensions Age has launched its first ever Great Western Conference, to meet the needs of pension fund managers, pension trustees and those working in the pensions sector in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful London and Northern Pensions Age conferences, which have become must-attend events in the UK pensions calendar, this conference will bring together key spokespeople from the across the UK pensions space, and act as a forum for those working in pensions to learn, engage and network alongside their peers at one of the most dynamic yet challenging times in UK pensions history.
This one-day conference, which is open to pension scheme managers, trustees, FDs, advisers, pension and HR professionals, will offer delegates the up-to-date knowledge and guidance they need to help them run their pension schemes and meet their members’ needs, whether in the DB, DC or hybrid space.
Freedom and choice in pensions is well and truly a reality now, and the pensions industry is working hard to provide the right products to meet members’ needs in the new world. Auto-enrolment has brought more than 9 million people into the pensions sphere, and has also entered the realms of higher contributions, with the challenges that brings. Master-trusts have become a key part of the market, but are under pressure to raise standards, with further consolidation likely; and the pensions dashboard is set to revolutionise the industry altogether.
Alongside that, fraud is an issue that still needs to be tackled, while pension funds are always under pressure to assess their investment strategies to meet the changing economic conditions depending on where they are in their pensions journey.
Similarly, effective governance is just as essential as it has always been and the spotlight still shines strongly on the need for pension schemes to not only be cost-effective and transparent, but also adequately be managing their risks on a daily basis.
Covering all aspects of pension provision, this key conference has become a must-attend pensions event and will help delegates improve their pensions knowledge and understanding with a series of presentations from leading pension professionals and policy-makers from across the industry.
