Partner insight session: Hitting your long-term funding target

Setting a “Long-Term Funding Target” will be an important focus for many trustee boards this year, after the clear steer from the Pensions Regulator to think beyond the Technical Provisions towards a long-term objective. We believe that for any objective to be achieved, there must be a measurable plan in place to get there. In this session, we demonstrate how good governance can support trustees in reaching their targets, whilst exploring the role that delegation and Fiduciary Management can play.

Partner insight session: Getting your house in order

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has just ordered the trustee boards of 400 schemes to urgently conduct a data review as part of its crackdown on poor scheme record-keeping. This crackdown marks the latest phase in a regulatory battle against poor data, an issue that has been systemic across the industry for many years. This session will look at the step’s schemes can take to bring their data up to standard once and for all.

Partner insight session: The master trust advantage

Employers are increasingly turning towards DC master trusts as a way in which to reduce the burden of running schemes as well as minimising costs and out-of-market exposures. This session looks at some of the benefits of a flexible master trust approach and assesses approaches to default investment design both to and through into retirement as well as different glide path designs and the benefits of passive or active investing.

Partner insight session: Measuring up – Offering good value in DC plans

DC schemes want to offer competitive, good value plans – with a majority wanting to do more than the minimum level required - but many are not measuring whether they are succeeding in meeting their objectives. Latest research shows that one in three DC scheme respondents do not measure progress against objectives, 65% don’t know the projected outcome for a typical member and just 25% of employers consider pension outcomes in the context of future workforce planning. This session looks at how DC schemes can assess their effectiveness and make sure there are robust measures in place to check their progress against objectives.

-
Pension scams

We know pension scams are now more sophisticated than ever and with the increased rate of transfers what should schemes be doing to ensure members are protected.

How does a scheme ensure the financial advice they’ve been given is sound. Should schemes be providing preferred advice firms? What about advertising transfer rates?

Panel: What does good governance look like?

Operational effectiveness and good governance are vital for pension stability. This interactive session will help trustees assess how well their pension scheme runs, looking at:

• How trustees, sponsors and advisers can work effectively

• How to drive efficient decision-making

• Planning for opportunities and threats

• An orderly approach: undertaking the right tasks, at the right levels at the right time

• The value of a robust business plan
