Smarter solutions for smaller pension schemes

Industry events are often run by a larger consultancies and cater to the needs of the larger schemes which are their target market. Whilst they can provide useful information, the specific needs of smaller pension arrangements are rarely covered.

This event is specifically aimed at the needs of smaller schemes and businesses, in particular;

• Consolidation of smaller pension schemes has been suggested as a panacea dealing with all the problems that small schemes face. What are the pitfalls? Can consolidation work?

• Regulations and governance is increasingly aimed at larger schemes with little heed being paid to the needs and resources of small schemes. How does this play into the drive towards consolidation?

• The Regulator is taking an increasing interest in smaller schemes by issuing questionnaires to trustees to complete in connection with the triennial actuarial valuations. Trustees will need to look closely at their governance model and ensure that they are taking an appropriate and proportional approach.

Significant changes are taking place in the pensions market that impact directly on smaller schemes. Large insurers have been outsourcing their DB administration or withdrawing from the market entirely, consultancies and service providers are getting increasingly large and impersonal, and at least one large service provider has come under the significant financial pressure. How is this likely to impact on smaller schemes?

When and where will the event take place: 3rd July 2018 @ Warwick Castle

We have worked with Atkin Trustees for many years on a wide range of cases and issues. They adopt a sensibly practical approach to trusteeship, focusing on outcomes for members. They’re also a nice bunch of people to work with.
