Professional Pensions is hosting the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) to exclusively launch the latest edition of the Purple Book through a live webinar.
Providing the most comprehensive picture of the risks faced by eligible defined benefit (DB) schemes, the publication is an annual Official Statistics publication detailing the state of scheme funding as of March 2019.
It also looks at how scheme demographics have changed throughout the year, the level of insolvency risk, typical scheme asset allocation, and the PPF levy and compensation.
In an exclusive live webinar on 17 January 2020, join us to hear Professional Pensions deputy editor James Phillips talk to PPF chief risk officer Stephen Wilcox and chief actuary Lisa McCrory about the key findings in the Purple Book and answer your questions on the DB landscape.
