The programme for this year's Professional Pensions Defined Contribution Conference - to be held in both London and Birmingham in September - has been announced.
The free-to-attend conference - which will take place in London on 9th September and in Birmingham on 16th September - will focus on the impact of the 2014 and 2015 budget changes and the host of recent pension reforms, looking in detail at what these changes mean in practice.
Speakers at the conferences will include Andrew Warwick-Thompson, the executive director of DC and public service pensions at The Pensions Regulator, who will look at new legislation, flesh out the charge cap and new governance rules and talk about the review of policy on 2017.
Topics covered at the conferences will include an update on DB to DC transfers, DC investment design, member communication, governance and financial education.
The London conference will also include a keynote address from Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, the former head of Britain's Security Service (MI5) - who will draw on her experiences in the most demanding of environments to stress the need for leaders in any walk of life to engage in frank dialogue and invite appropriate criticism.
