Our UK Pensions Group is delighted to share details of this year’s Annual Pensions Conference. Like last year, the Conference is being run as a series of weekly webinars in November and December and will explore current and upcoming pensions-related matters that we anticipate will be at the forefront of trustees’ and employers’ minds.
The webinars will take place at the same time each week, 10:00 a.m., on Wednesdays from 17 November to 8 December. Further details on each webinar are available below:

24 November: Pensions dashboards – worth the wait?
