    Pensions issues for Financial Advisers: what the next Budget can’t avoid
    James Jones-Tinsley - Self-Invested Technical Specialist, Barnett Waddingam Recorded: Dec 12 2018 42 mins
    While a dearth of pension changes in the October 2018 Budget is generally a welcome thing, our Pensions Technical Specialist James Jones-Tinsley looks at key issues the Chancellor won’t be able to keep dodging and explains why they matter to financial advisers and their clients.

    The Chancellor needs to find the money from somewhere to meet the promised extra funding for the NHS, amongst other things, and recently described pensions tax relief as “eye-wateringly expensive”.

    Once the dust has settled, join our interactive webinar hosted by Self-Invested Pensions Technical Specialist, James Jones-Tinsley, who will guide you through all the implications - and key topics of discussion - arising from the Budget announcement.

    For Financial Advisers and other professionals, the webinar will be eligible for CPD purposes.
  • In your members’ shoes: the corporate overview
    In your members’ shoes: the corporate overview
    Senior Client Relationship Managers Martin Willis & Andy Parker - Barnett Waddingham Recorded: Nov 30 2018 30 mins
    At our DC Conference, we helped delegates understand the experiences, challenges and thought processes of their members to enable them to make better decisions for their scheme – truly putting themselves in their members’ shoes.

    If you were unable to attend the conference, or wish to recap on some of the key messages, we are running a series of bite-size 30 minute webinars to cover some of the topics discussed.

    Inspired by the session delivered by Bill McNabb, Chairman of the Board of Vanguard, this webinar will consider how the strategy you bring to your benefit proposition should reflect the organisation’s culture.

    This includes engaging the workforce to ensure optimum service is provided, assessing relative value and "looking forward" to identify future trends for both benefit provision and propositional offering.

  • Is CDC the solution?
    Is CDC the solution?
    Paul Hamilton, Barnett Waddingham and Rajish Sagoenie, Milliman Pensioenen Recorded: Mar 22 2018 39 mins
    Defined benefit pension schemes with future service benefits have been largely forgotten by the DWP and the Pensions Regulator, but future service costs can cause even more problems (for those employers that do wish to provide them) than the well-publicised past-service deficits.

    A few high profile schemes, such as Royal Mail, have started to ask for legislative changes to allow “Collective DC” (or CDC) schemes to be used in the UK. Barnett Waddingham Partner, Paul Hamilton looks at how DB future accrual works (or doesn’t work) in the UK, and is joined by Rajish Sagoenie, Managing Director of Milliman Pensioenen in The Netherlands to talk through his experiences of working with CDC schemes there.

  • Death by Actuarial Reports
    Death by Actuarial Reports
    Kim Durniat - Partner and Head of Life Consulting and Amit Lad - Actuary, Barnett Waddingham Recorded: Feb 21 2018 42 mins
    There is no getting away from it - actuarial reports are a fact of life and are here to stay.

    Important and material information can easily get lost in long technical and “boring” reports. This makes it difficult for report users such as committees and boards to identify the key issues, and increases the risk of suboptimal decision-making.

    It is unlikely that any actuarial report will ever win the Man Booker prize, however, there are many things you can do to make the writing process easier and make the report less dreaded by its users.

    This webinar will cover how to improve the writing process of reports and make long, technical and “boring” reports a thing of the past.
