Professional Pensions is holding a complimentary breakfast briefing on assessing value for money in defined contribution (DC) schemes.
The briefing - which will be held at the South Place Hotel on Monday 20 November from 8:30am - will look at how advisers and employers assess their approach to DC investment and assess the key characteristics of an appropriate DC investment strategy.
It will also look at value for money; what value for money actually means when it comes to DC; and how consultants and advisers can reassure employers that the scheme they have chosen will provide this value.
The event will additionally look at the extent to which employers and advisers have an obligation to ensure DC investment options will deliver good outcomes for members and look at the measures they take to ensure this is the case.
Speakers at the briefing will include PWC head of DC and employee benefits consulting Philip Smith; Chase de Vere proposition development manager Sean McSweeney; and NEST senior business development manager Helen Dowsey.
The briefing is designed exclusively for corporate IFAs and consultants. To attend, register for your complimentary place here.
