Webinar description:

For DB pension schemes approaching their endgame, there are now more options than ever to consider.

This webinar – held in partnership with Legal & General – is aimed at trustees and will explore how you can plan for your endgame, regardless of where you are on your de-risking journey or the size of your scheme.

Expert speakers from Legal & General’s award-winning investment management and pension risk transfer businesses will examine the endgame landscape and the options available to schemes, while two independent trustees will offer their reflections from a small and large scheme-perspective to give you a practical outlook on the different considerations that may shape your thinking.

  • Investment Management Perspective: choosing the right destination for your scheme and investment solutions to help get you there
  • Small and Large Scheme Perspectives: two pension trustees offer their reflections on the steps that small and large schemes can take to manage down their risks
  • Pension Risk Transfer perspective: from traditional solutions such as buy-in and buyout to new and innovative approaches for schemes that are not currently transaction-ready or who are looking at more affordable de-risking options.

The event is accredited through the CPD Certification Service meaning delegates can gain credits for continuing professional development.
