We are all aware of and dealing with the retirement challenge we face with an ageing population and insufficient savings to ensure everybody can have the lifestyle they desire in retirement. This conference will bring together over 300 people from the pensions sector to examine the macro and practical issues we all face. We will look at how the challenge is being addressed in the US and Australia and whether we can learn lessons from there. We will also consider the difficulties individual members face in making retirement choices and hear a practical case study on enhanced transfer values. We can see the latest research from TILDA on the impact of pensions on wellbeing in retirement.


This Conference has been allocated 4 hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. We have confirmation of 4 hours CPD from the LIA (LIA00434_2017) and the IOB (2017-1953) under Category 2 – Pensions and 1 CPD hour under Category 3 - Savings & Investments. We also have confirmation of 4 CPD hours from the IIPM.
