Defined Contribution Conference

Evolving DC offerings to members

The past year has been one of change for defined contribution pension schemes. The Pensions Regulator completed its authorisation regime, with 38 master trusts meeting its new standards. Minimum auto-enrolment contribution rates increased from 5% to 8% last April and there has also been significant progress on the pensions dashboard and much thinking on how to reinvigorate DC investment strategies.

This year will see an evolution of DC pension schemes. Investment strategies will increasingly look to become more ESG focused as well as looking towards alternatives such as private markets and infrastructure. Communications will become ever more sophisticated as schemes and employers ready themselves for the dashboard as well as look to engage members better with their pensions. There will also be an increasing focus on the value for money of individual schemes as well as more thinking on how members should invest their pots as they approach, and enter, retirement.

Professional Pensions’  Spring Defined Contribution Conference will address these themes, and more; with presentations from industry experts and providers, as well as a wealth of networking opportunities.

Join us for a day of insight and information. We look forward to seeing you there.

This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
