At next week's PBUK we will be asking our key speakers about the effects of the Brexit vote on pension scheme.
Britain's vote to leave the European Union has sent shockwaves across Europe and triggered market turmoil across the globe.
But what are the implications of the Brexit vote on pension schemes over the longer term? And how will the decision to leave the European Union affect fund investments?
We will be putting these questions to our lineup of over 100 expert speakers at Pensions and Benefits UK, London's biggest pensions and benefits conference and exhibition, which will be held on 28-29 June at London's Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre.
Over 900 pension scheme and employee benefit professional have already confirmed their attendance at this year's PBUK - and we expect over 1000 pensions and benefits professionals to attend the event over two days. View all the companies currently attending here.
Delegate places at the event are FREE for individuals with direct responsibility for an organisation's pension and benefits schemes - but there are only a couple of days left to register. Sign up to attend the conference here.
In addition to looking at the implications of Brexit, the conference will include presentations discussing some of the other key issues in pensions today, including BHS and scheme funding issues and the current debate around the British Steel Pension Scheme and whether or not the government should introduce a statutory override to allow schemes to reduce the level of pension increases.
It will include keynote speeches from pensions minister Baroness Ros Altmann and shadow pensions minister Angela Rayner. Other keynote speakers will include The Pensions Regulator chief executive Lesley Titcomb and Andrew Marr, the award-winning host of the eponymous Sunday morning interview show on BBC1.
PBUK 2016 will also see the return of the Pension Prophets - Peter Askins, Robin Ellison, Roger Mattingly and Malcolm McLean - and also include an investment leaders' debate, with panellists including Columbia Threadneedle Investments chief investment officer Mark Burgess and Standard Life Investments chief investment officer Rod Paris.
It will also include a keynote session on creating the right benefits package for a multi-generational workforce - hearing from FirstGroup group pensions & reward director John Chilman about how employers can meet the needs of as many as five generations in the workplace.
Benefit sessions will include presentations on boosting value in your employee benefits package and using data analytics to boost your employee benefits offering & communications.
