Pension schemes in the UK are entering a new era with both opportunities and challenges ahead. As they move from Covid-19 response to recovery, DB and DC schemes are operating in a landscape of expanding regulation, new expectations around climate and ESG action, changing demographics and innovative technologies. The macro environment for investment is also evolving with new avenues for allocations and yield opening up, against a background of ongoing economic uncertainty.
Given the major global developments over the last eighteen months, how should schemes, trustees, sponsors and policy makers plan for 2022 and beyond? What is the outlook for consolidation - is it the only option when value is considered? Where does ESG fit into pension strategy, and how can trustees make sure they are complying with their fiduciary duty to members while maximising the possibilities of responsible investing? As the provisions of the Pensions Schemes Act 2021 start to come into force, what impact is it having in practice, on schemes and trustees?
Join the Financial Times and Pensions Expert as we convene experts in investment, scheme management, governance, regulation, ESG and technology to explore the major issues facing DB and DC schemes today – and how these are playing out for some of the largest and most successful pension providers in the UK.
