Does size matter for DB pension schemes?

Pensions Conference

The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa
Aberdeen

The DWP’s Green Paper on Security and Sustainability in Defined Benefit Pension Schemes and the PLSA’s proposals for consolidation of small DB pension schemes have prompted much debate on the administration and governance of these types of schemes and how the pensions industry meets the needs of trustees and sponsoring employers. This Conference will focus on the management of small DB pension schemes and discuss the industry proposals for scheme consolidation.
