  • How to overcome the challenges of pension transfers How to overcome the challenges of pension transfers Ben Clacker, Associate and Administration manager – Barnett Waddingham Recorded: Feb 28 2017 44 mins
    Are you aware of the challenges surrounding pension transfers? During this webinar, our Administration Manager, Ben Clacker, will guide you through the key issues to look out for – and how to avoid them.

    The introduction of Freedom and Choice brought about an increased frequency of pension transfer requests. In addition, developments such as HMRC’s change to their QROPS listing, and the rise of pension scams, have impacted administrative due diligence requirements.

    Reflecting on high profile news stories, case studies and current developments, Ben will demonstrate how administration teams can act as the first line of defense and effectively mitigate the risk of transfers, protecting member’s benefits by implementing a comprehensive quality control frame work, practicing due diligence, and engaging with trustees.

    Ben will guide you through:

    •The impact scams can have on members’ benefits
    •Insight into the administrative challenges of pensions transfers
    •Examples of tactics scammers may use to defraud members’ benefits
    •The importance of quality administration when it comes to pensions transfers
  • Supplier Enablement:The Path to 100% Supplier Enablement:The Path to 100% Greif,a Coupa customer and leading global manufacturer Recorded: Feb 27 2017 3 mins
    When it comes to supplier enablement, companies implementing e-invoicing have very low expectations. On average, they're aiming for only 49%, according to recent poll data from The Hackett Group. And none of the respondents set their goal as 100% enablement. Apparently, the poll didn't include Greif, a Coupa customer and leading global manufacturer of industrial packaging. By the end of 2015, Greif will have over 90% of their approximately 3,500 indirect suppliers enabled and they hope to reach their goal of 100% early in 2016

    -Regulations are being updated too slowly / Regulations are too complex / Complex Legislation
    -Banks are still the most important power in the financial markets / Hegemony of banks in the industry / The everlasting strength of traditional banks
    -Fintech products have weak popularity compared to other consumer products / Negative associations related to the whole Financial sector / Lack of consumer trust for financial products
    -Hard to reach software developers with experience / Software Developers can’t be found / It’s hard to hire the right people for the job
    -Data safety / User privacy / Safety of exchanging financial information
