What does the Future of Trusteeship and Governance mean for DB schemes? We will look at the outcomes of the Pension Regulator’s (TPR) consultation, focusing on the key elements of the consultation and considering where pension schemes are headed as they evolve. We also consider the challenges faced by Schemes and Trustees as they strive to move towards TPR’s vision for the future.
What does 2020 have in store for DC Governance? We will discuss TPR’s final response on the Future of Governance and Trusteeship consultation and what we might expect from the additional guidance expected in 2020 to support schemes in their legal requirement to “demonstrate an effective system of governance”. We also consider the increasing interest in corporate governance committees to oversee Master Trust and GPP arrangements, and how to maximise the governance effectiveness of such committees.
This webinar is suitable for both trustees and corporates interested in the evolution of DC Governance in 2020 and beyond.
