Stability in a demanding market
Professional Pensions is proud to announce our annual conference Investment and Risk is returning and will take place on the 1st December at Crowne Plaza Birmingham.
This event is travelling to Birmingham to provide a thoroughly researched agenda relevant for trustees, pension fund managers and senior pension fund and benefit scheme representatives, with the aim to update and educate attendees on the recent changes relating to pension scheme risks, liability developments and investment opportunities.
Due to sluggish growth globally the Bank of England cut interest rates to a record low of 0.25% in August making securing returns on investments for trustees paramount. In a report last year, consultants Lane, Clark & Peacock found that FTSE 100 pension liabilities had doubled since 2005, this coupled with low gilt yields has created a demanding market for achieving good outcomes for members.
