Pensions Winter Forum: How to win the pensions endgame

Wednesday 19 January 2022 13:00 - 14:00

With the Pension Schemes Act 2021 requiring a long term strategy from Trustees and sponsors, choosing a pensions endgame strategy has become even more critical. However, it is important that the endgame options available are adequately assessed before choosing one. With an ever-increasing array of creative and innovative options available, this decision may not be straightforward.

The panellists, including an insurer, a consolidator and a master trust provider, will give you an overview of some of the options available. They will also discuss the key considerations when choosing the right endgame strategy for your scheme, and how to ensure a successful implementation.
