UK - Law firm Wragge & Co is holding a series of pension training sessions throughout September and October.
The series begins on September 15 with a discussion on disability discrimination and pension schemes. Other topics to be reviewed include trustee governance, fraud, rectification, risk management, common investment funds and an update on the Pensions Bill.
All will be held at Wragge’s Birmingham offices and are free. For details, contact Glyn Ryland or Suzy Randall on 0121 213 2392.
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
Smaller FTSE 350 defined benefit (DB) schemes were nearly 15 percentage points less well-funded than larger schemes in 2017, according to a Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) analysis.
The advent of collective pension systems could help the UK avoid demographic challenges which will make it "impossible" for society to help savers in retirement, experts say.
