Survival or success?
How to navigate choppy waters and a surge of regulation

We are excited to invite you to LCP’s first ever hybrid annual pensions conference.

This year we take a deep dive under the waves of the current regulatory changes which affect all those connected with pension schemes – trustees, sponsors and administrators – in a way like never before.

In such a fast-paced world with ever-increasing regulatory requirements, this is a chance to step back and reflect on some of the bigger issues affecting schemes right now. Our conference includes a packed agenda covering a range of topical subjects from climate change to pension scams. Our speakers will provide clear, practical takeaways to help direct you on a path to success.

We look forward to seeing you at what will be an interesting, insightful and informative event.

Who should attend?
Pensions Trustees, Pensions Managers, C-Suite
