clock • 1 min read

The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has launched its inaugural student essay competition.

The competition - which is being sponsored by ITM - is open to the institute's student members, affiliate student members and anyone registered to sit one of the PMI's qualifications.

The winner will be awarded £500, while the two runners up will win £250. Winning entries will be published in the PMI's Pensions Aspects publication as well as on www.professionalpensions.com.

To take part in the competition, entrants will need to write an essay of 1,200 to 1,500 words answering the question: "The terms 'risk reduction' and 'de-risking' are used frequently in relation to pensions, but usually focus on investment strategy. What other ways can pension schemes reduce risk in the administration, provision and communication of pensions to individuals?"

Entries should be submitted to the PMI's membership team by 11.59pm on 10 May 2019.

The essays will be judges by the student essay competition judging panel and winners will be notified by the end of May.

Further information on the competition can be found on the PMI's website.
