The third presentations from our recent Pensions Freedom event. The Pension bombshell dropped by The Chancellor in the March budget has galvanised the UK market. Recent research will show how the UK consumer has reacted to the changes. In other countries where savers do not have to buy annuities (e.g. Australia and USA) what do retirees do with their pension pots? What does the retirement income market look like and what products have developed and prospered? What has driven consumer behaviour in those markets? And, with the new pension flexibilities in the UK, what would be a good outcome from a regulatory perspective?Read more >
In this webinar we take you through how our DB pension client (T H WHITE) moved from a £13.8m buy-out deficit to being able to secure their members’ pensions in full with a £25m buy-out. Ultimately, they only paid £4.8m of contributions and were able to wind-up the scheme with a surplus refunded.
We look at how the key ingredients of an effective investment strategy, good preparation and governance, and seizing opportunities with insurers could help you achieve your objectives ahead of schedule, and with much lower company contributions than originally expected.
Who should watch this webinar?
Trustees or sponsors with closed defined benefit pension schemes (under £100m) who have an ultimate goal to buy-out and wind-up.
A short round-up of topical matters regarding pensions; particularly given the political and economic backdrop arising from the General Election result, and the start of the Brexit negotiations.Read more >

Transferring administration services to a new provider can be a challenging process, but an efficient and seamless transfer can be achieved through approaching the project with transparency, cooperation and accountability.
Chris Tagg, will walk you through the transfer process, looking at best practice, roles that various parties play and the expectations that trustees should have, as well as the common traps to avoid.
As one of only two third-party administrators in the UK to have achieved PASA Accreditation, maintaining the ‘gold standard for high quality pension administration’ has never been more important but where does PASA fit in with both the old and new administrators? Chris examines their significance in a broader context alongside Barnett Waddingham’s approach to implementations.
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

Since 31 December 2015 the liability value of a typical pension scheme has increased by 25%. This increase can have real consequences; as Carclo found out in October, when it was unable to pay an interim dividend.
Join Adam Poulson, as he guides you through the simple steps you can take to mitigate this issue.
As a means of helping ease the burden of pension liabilities, de-risking transactions remain high on the agendas of corporate sponsors and trustees.
When considering de-risking, principal focus is often justifiably spent on identifying the correct solution for the best price. However, other factors also deserve similar focus – transactions such as pension buy-ins or the use of longevity swaps often involve considerable complexity, with the resulting collateral structures persisting long after deal completion.
We invite you to join this webinar, in which we will explore these issues further. After assessing current trends in de-risking, we will focus on how three specific types of transaction – the collateralised buy-in, the use of longevity reinsurance or swaps, and the trapped surplus vehicle – can be supported.
Though this session, we aim to equip pension managers, trustees and corporate sponsors with a further understanding of the timeframes involved in these transactions – and share experiences of how deals have been successfully executed.

Steve Bee is a prominent pensions strategist. Aside from his role at a major life company, he contributes columns and cartoons for a number of industry publications.
Steve is well known for his campaign to simplify the jargon that surrounds the world of pensions. In the same entertaining down-to-earth way, his presentations tackle head on what many seem to be ignoring.
Half the workforce has no occupational pension. Even if we do make provision, there's no guarantee that it's safe. What of the employers that have changed their payouts from final salary to defined contributions? What of the 300,000 stakeholder pension schemes, which hardly anyone has joined?
Steve Bee was named in Money Marketing's list of the most influential names in UK financial services. He tells audiences how it is, and how he sees the future.
