Innovation in Pension Fund Governance

Date: 
March 31, 2021

Venue: 
Online

Delegate Fee:

Free to Trustees and Pension Executives

Purpose: 

Whilst having good UK pension fund governance has become a priority for many trustees., have we really established what good governance is? Given the poor state of funding that most pension schemes are in, can we actually claim success and what part has overbearing regulation had?

 

Challenges clearly remain but are really set up to meet them? How should we deal with technological change and innovate, enhance the security and experience of pension participants, and making good on societal priorities including climate change?

 

Our speakers will aim to discuss:

  • Given the ever increasing standards being expected for both professional and non-professional trustees, how can Trustees improve their board governance?

  • Trustees are overloaded with data – What practical advice can be given on what they can do to manage their data?

  • Digital working during the Pandemic has created a new reality and world of technology. Looking forward – what will the new normal look like and do trustees need to change their ways?

  • Does regulation stifle innovation? Is the current regulatory framework fit for purpose?

  • How should boards be organised better and what continued role should professional trustees or perhaps a sole trustee model play?
