14th Annual Pensions Conference

Who should attend

This Pensions conference will be relevant to finance directors, in-house lawyers, trustees, pensions managers and professionals, plus HR directors with responsibility for pensions.


Minority government and Brexit has stalled reform in many areas of workplace regulation but not in pensions, where we are in a period of transformational change. When over ten million auto-enrolled savers are enabled to access their pensions dashboard easily on their phone screen a revolution really is in prospect.

There is a growing focus on ESG investing for the long term, as well as increasing consolidation to reduce cost and risk. Along with better governance measures, is this a pensions framework that is future-fit?

This Pensions conference considers the many ways in which significant change is underway in how retirement benefits are structured, provided and developed - and how employers and trustees are encouraging financial inclusion and engagement.
