Scheme Funding Summit 2017
DB Pensions have very much been in the spotlight for 2017 with several high profile cases dominating the headlines, illustrating how many pension schemes continue to face significant funding challenges. Indeed, according to The Pension Regulator's Purple Book, the aggregate funding ratio of DB schemes has fallen from 97% on s179 basis in 2006 to 78% at the end of August 2016 - despite companies making special contributions in excess of £120bn during the period.
Professional Pensions is pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the second annual Scheme Funding Summit.
The Scheme Funding Summit will examine the different ways in which schemes can close the £250bn funding gap they face - looking at a range of options such as increased sponsor contributions, changes in governance or an overhaul of investment strategy.
