Pensions Winter Forum: Pension Scams

Wednesday 8 December 2021 13:30 - 14:30

Spaces available

Pension scams have become more prevalent as a result of the pandemic, and Trustees have increased responsibilities to protect members, which means that actuaries need to be in a position to provide advice in this area. Our specialist panel will include a professional trustee, an IFA and head administrator, two of whom are members of PASA. You will hear about the latest pension scam trends, tPR’s pledge and real case studies, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the panellists.
