What is the future of the pensions industry, and what are the changes that will impact on trustees, fund managers, employers and fund members?
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, in partnership with ITN Productions, launches a three-part news and current affairs-style programme, Pension Reinvention, on October 19, 2016. The programme investigates how the industry is responding to seismic changes in regulations and expectations and the impact of pensions freedoms on fund members. Employers are being encouraged to take a stronger role in engaging fund members, whilst trustees face the pressure of more regulatory obligations and responsibilities in an increasingly complex environment.
National newsreader, Natasha Kaplinsky, hosts Pension Reinvention – ninety minutes of interviews with industry leaders, news-style reports, and sponsored editorial profiles of some of the leading organisations in the sector.
Pension Protection Fund Chief Executive, Alan Rubenstein, talks about the future of Defined Benefit schemes in a special report on the PLSA’s DB Taskforce. With six thousand Defined Benefit pension schemes in the UK, more than 16 million members, and collective assets of more than one trillion pounds, the taskforce is designed to assess the challenges facing DB schemes, and the impact of these challenges on scheme members, employers and the wider economy.
Other reports include the launch of the Association’s new Retirement Quality Mark and how the PLSA’s Pension Solution website is helping small employers with auto enrolment.
The three programmes, ‘Adapting to Change,’ ‘The Lifetime Savings Journey,’ and ‘Trust in the Future’ will be launched at the PLSA Annual conference in Liverpool on the evening of October 19.
