IAPF Annual DC Conference - “DC – Moving Parts”

DC provision is still a thing of moving parts as it continues to grow and become much more relevant. More thought is being given to scheme design, communication, governance and investment. This conference will examine those issues and also look at practical examples of what schemes are doing. This event will be of educational and practical benefit to anyone involved in running or setting up a DC scheme.

This Conference has been accredited 4 CPD hours by the LIA (LIA-O-4488 & IOB No: 2014-1114) and 4 CPD hours by the IIPM. If you have a query relating to CPD hours please contact the relevant awarding body.
