The last 12 months have been turbulent as the World existed Covid restrictions, Russia invaded Ukraine and inflation and interest rates started to rise. This led to a lot of uncertainty which was reflected in investment markets. Pension schemes were also under pressure to either implement the IORP II requirements or choose a different way of providing retirement benefits. We also saw more reform and Auto-enrolment moving closer. This conference will look at some of these issues and what schemes are now facing. It will also include a regulatory update from the Pensions Authority.

Don't miss out. This Conference will bring together over 200 trustees, Pensions, HR and finance managers, policymakers and service providers to consider and discuss issues facing pension schemes today. 


This Conference will be allocated CPD hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. We received 3.5 hours CPD from LIA (LIA15760_2023), the IOB (2023-1872) and IIPM in categories Pensions, Savings & Investment. If you have a query in relation to CPD, please contact the relevant  bodies.
