18 February – The next generation of CDC pensions? Analysing a post-retirement retirement vehicle

What will happen to DC pension savers who see life annuities as poor VFM but still want an income for life?  Pooled annuity funds could offer them a decent lifetime income while reducing significantly the complex choices and risk inherent in income drawdown.  They could be the next generation of CDC pension schemes, slotting into the existing DC framework as a post-retirement option.

Professor Catherine Donnelly, Principal investigator of the ARC programme Optimising Future Pension Plans describes her recent research finding in this session, chaired by IFoA past president John Taylor.

24 February – Lifting the lid on intergenerational investment risk-sharing

Investment risk-sharing is a fundamental part of whole-life collective defined contribution (CDC) pension schemes, such as the Royal Mail CDC.  But how does investment risk-sharing benefit members?  And does it favour some groups of members over others? Professor Donnelly presents the results of a simplified model of investment risk-sharing in this session Chaired by Leah Evans, Chair of the IFoA Pensions Practice Board.

The high-level lessons learned from this model should be useful to understand the impact of various factors on the benefits paid to members. For example, how the predicted investment return versus their observed values, the evolution of the membership profile, and the frequency of the contributions and benefits.

    Part of the 'Finance in the Public Interest 2022' webinar series. If it was ever okay to consider your business in isolation from its surroundings, today it most definitely is not. Thinking about business within its surrounding system is now a necessity. The question we seek to discuss is: How should we prescribe the boundaries in which we consider problems to enable us to create better products and more resilient companies and systems?
