Spring Retirement Seminar

2019: A defining year for the UK pensions landscape
Thursday 23rd May 2019
L&G Offices, One Coleman St, London EC2R 5AA

Why you should attend
Theres a hive of activity occurring in the pensions space and 2019 is shaping up to be one of the busiest yet, with proposals set to define the future of UK pensions. Guy Opperman, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Pensions and Financial Inclusion, has stated his intention to deliver a very substantial Pensions Bill this summer, with potential candidates including Pensions Dashboards, Collective Defined Contribution, and mid-life MOTs.

Combined with that, we have the latest consultations on the Retirement Outcomes Review and DC Investments and Consolidation in progress. We have also seen the launch of the Money and Pensions Service (formerly SFGB) this year, with a remit which includes helping consumers receive appropriate guidance and advice to aid decision making. This is your opportunity to hear each of our expert speakers share their visions and key messages to industry on some of these hugely important initiatives.

The event will be chaired by Tom McPhail, Head of Retirement Policy, Hargreaves Lansdown.

Speakers & Seminar Programme
Confirmed speakers and topics covered include:

  • Emma Douglas, Head of DC Solutions, LGIM A view of the current pensions landscape from the perspective of Legal & General.
  • Direction of Travel - Given the number of changes we have seen in recent years, Baroness Drake looks at current direction of travel and considers what still needs to be done to create a comprehensive framework, offering opportunities and protection for the consumer and industry. Baroness Drake CBE
  • Collective Defined Contribution With CDC set to become part of the UK DC pension landscape, Wilse discusses the Netherlands model and his experiences, highlighting the benefits and challenges that a collective DC model creates. With the benefit of hindsight, we hear about lessons learned, the changes currently taking place and the key areas we need to consider and focus on to help make this a success and avoid unexpected outcomes. Wilse Graveland, Head of Fiduciary Management, Institutional Clients, Kempen
  • Pensions Dashboards Dashboards are an opportunity to engage millions of consumers with pensions saving and retirement decisions. Implementation and content are key to achieving optimal consumer outcomes. We learn more about the design and management of this major programme of activity and how Government and industry can work in collaboration to make this initiative a success.

  • Investment Pathways These proposals form part of the wide-ranging Retirement Outcomes Review and have created a lot of debate within the industry. Andrew looks at the implications and challenges of developing Investment Pathways, shares details of their experience of post freedoms choices and considers how we can enhance consumer engagement and decision making.Andrew Storey, Proposition Director, EValue
  • Consumer engagement and the launch of SFGB (now MAPS) Launched at the beginning of this year, MAPS comprises MAS, Pension Wise and TPAS with objectives including the enablement of consumers to make informed financial decisions and to support the provision of information, guidance and advice in areas where it is lacking. Clearly this is a large undertaking and will require time and careful planning. We provide details of their roadmap and discuss some of the high priorities and challenges to be addressed in the coming months Speaker to be confirmed
  • The Future of Master Trusts The new authorisation regime has resulted in several schemes exiting the market and, as we write, a large number are currently in the assessment stage. As the first Master Trust to gain the new TPR authorisation, David shares LifeSights view of the Master Trust landscape and considers how this might evolve over time. And with smaller occupational scheme DC consolidation being promoted by DWP in their recent consultation, looks at the benefits that scale can bring to schemes and their members. David Bird, Director and Head of Proposition, Lifesight at Willis Towers Watson
