The content is specifically designed to give you some tools to make good, reasoned, ethical decisions when faced with challenges in your daily personal and/or professional life. The 2016/2017 content covers a broad range of issues such as:
- Conflicts of interest in different contexts
- Good governance and meeting management
- Potential challenges encountered by sole traders and actuaries in smaller firms
- Respecting confidentiality
- Work review – the dos and don’ts
- Internal processes and policies, professional standards etc. – how do you get the job done?
You may of course source relevant CPD from other providers as long as it meets the objectives set out in the CPD Scheme 2016/2017
To reduce buffering issues and improve the user experience, we recommend that you access the videos from a home PC or a mobile 4G connection, as these usually deliver more bandwidth than corporate networks where bandwidth may be limited.

This webinar will provide an update on the emerging thinking around future regulation of DB schemes:
The webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities schemes face in evaluating end game options, choosing a target state and understanding the impact this strategic decision could have on member outcomes long after the “end state” is reached. Adolfo, Kevin and Rhian bring over 60 years of experience in the industry and a variety of perspectives as scheme actuary, covenant adviser, trustee, de-risking adviser and insurer.
Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets. And for trustees, it shifts the focus to providing greater certainty of returns, managing funding level volatility and ensuring they have enough income to pay cash-flow requirements.
The talk will provide an understanding of the priorities and relationships between deficit reduction contributions, in the context of wider scheme funding, and different types of value outflow from the employer based on the working party’s recently published report.
