PLSA seeks pension experts for Policy Board

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) is calling for experts and thought leaders from the pensions industry to become members of its Policy Board.

There are up to seven places available on the board, mainly due to members coming to the end of their two-year terms and some changes in employment.

The board, chaired by Legal & General Investment Management head of DC, Emma Douglas, was formed in 2018 and guides and decides on PLSA public policy positions across all the organisation’s policy work, with the goal of shaping policy agenda for all aspects of retirement income.

It encompasses around 15 participants from the PLSA’s membership, including pension funds from the DB, DC, LGPS and master trust sectors, alongside business members such as employee benefits consultants and law firms.

PLSA Policy Board chair, Emma Douglas, commented: “The Policy Board is an important and influential body which plays a crucial role in setting the PLSA’s policy agenda, ensuring the PLSA is tackling the issues that matter most to our members and are in savers’ interests.

“We are looking for the sector’s thought leaders and experts. It is vital that we recruit highly skilled people from a range of pension backgrounds to ensure the PLSA fulfils its role as the voice of the pensions industry.

“By harnessing members’ experience and understanding, the PLSA is able to put forward well-argued policies on behalf of our members in pursuit of our mission to help everyone achieve a better income in retirement."

The deadline for applications is Friday 4 December.
