Defined Contribution Conference Autumn 2017

Welcome to DC Autumn 2017 hosted by Professional Pensions, the conference dedicated to the needs of Defined Contribution schemes.

The advent of auto-enrolment and the introduction of pension freedoms, coupled with the rapid growth of DC schemes and the shift to individual responsibility have created exceptionally challenging conditions for the DC pension market. With the triggering of Article 50, and continued market volatility, schemes need to prepare for more turbulence ahead.

There are more active savers now in DC pension schemes than DB; whilst this rise is a step in the right direction, DC plans must continue to evolve if they are to provide savers with an adequate pension. Our exclusive one-day conference will examine the challenges and issues Defined Contribution schemes face, and will showcase latest thinking, best practice and innovation from industry experts and market leaders.

Topics include:

  • Default fund structure
  • Master trusts in the spotlight
  • Governance and risk management
  • Opportunities in emerging market debt

Plus we'll have an unmissable expert panel looking at the how and why of pension communication.
