IAPF Annual Investment Conference

“May You Live in Interesting Times”

With a new Government on the way, turbulent investment markets, uncertainty about the world economy, the introduction of risk reserves, Financial Management Guidelines and DC Codes of Governance we are certainly living in interesting times. It remains to be seen whether this is a curse or an observation. The Annual IAPF Investment Conference will look at these issues with a view to helping trustees through these times.

CPD: 4 Hours. This conference has been allocated 4 hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. It has  been accredited 4 CPD hours by the LIA & IOB under Category 2 - Pensions  and Category 3 - Savings & Investments (LIA Ref: LIA-O-10497) (IOB Ref: 2016-0499. It has also been accredited 4 CPD hour from the IIPM. We have applied for CPD hours from the FPSB Ireland.
