Defined Benefit Summit 2024
Thursday 26 September | Yorkshire (Venue TBC)

***Information on this website relates to the 2023 event. Details about the 2024 conference will be announced soon***

From increased regulation of superfunds and DB master trusts to Laura Trott releasing a statement in March proposing a delay in staging dates of The Pensions Dashboard, and the recent announcement of the Funding code being delayed until April 2024. The pensions industry has recently seen many difficulties, including the largest annual decline in global pension assets since the 2008 financial crisis. Despite this, schemes fared well against their long-term targets in 2022, withstanding market volatility and gaining from partially unhedged positions against interest rates. A year on post mini budget, it feels as if we are Out of The Woods and Venturing Forward. Yet, Trustees are now faced with the aftermath of it all.

Will LDI ever come back into the spotlight? How are schemes preparing for a far more premature Endgame Journey than expected? What does the future of schemes onboarding onto the Pensions Dashboard look like after the reset? These are just some of the many concerns DB scheme Trustees have on their plates already – with more, yet to be uncovered.

So, with a schedule becoming busier by the minute, Professional Pensions invites you to join us for our latest event, the Defined Benefit Summit. This event has been designed to unite leading experts, pension scheme trustees and sponsors to challenge the most topical issues affecting the DB pensions industry.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in informative sessions, interactive discussions, and insightful Q&A. Network with industry peers, whilst exploring the latest products and services from exhibitors.

The Defined Benefit Summit is a must-attend event for anyone looking for first-class content and a second-to-none experience! Greet the rest of 2023 with a fresh attitude and stay ahead of the curve of the DB pension discussion.
