There are now only a few weeks left to register for the PP Defined Contribution Conference 2014, which will be be held in London on 17 September.
The one-day conference - free to attend for trustees and scheme professionals - will look at how to make sure your scheme is ‘Budget 2014' compliant and ready for the introduction of retirement flexibilities next year.
Sessions will look at designing post-budget DC schemes; how to ensure investment strategies are suitable for the new flexible regime; look at the alternatives to annuities; and ask how members are likely to use of the freedom and choice they have been given.
It will also look at creating an engaging DC communications strategy; look at how schemes can help members achieve better outcomes and look at the charge cap - assessing what this means in reality and how to ensure both schemes and members pay for what they actually get in return.
It will also include a case study from Finmeccanica - the company that won Best DC Innovation at this year's Pension Scheme of the Year Awards. Head of pensions Mike Nixon will explain how the firm has introduced a joint governance model for DC assets across the group and extended contribution flexibility for members.
The conference will be held at The Mayfair Hotel on Stratton Street in London on 17 September.
