The Summit of the future

Two years since the global coronavirus was first declared, defined contribution plan sponsors are continuing to tackle several trends affecting their plans and members — What does the current economic landscape mean for investment lineups? How do ESG factors tie into plan priorities? How can plan sponsors use data and technology? Is there a space for hybrid pension plans? What legislative changes are required? What’s ahead for in-plan decumulation options? How can communications and education approaches improve employees’ retirement readiness? The 2022 Summit will feature case studies from plan sponsors already leading the way on these topics, as well as presentations by thought leaders to help employers embrace these changes and prepare for the future.

Who Should Attend?
The Summit is the premier annual conference in Canada for DC leaders and influencers. The Summit’s highly interactive format focuses on sharing best practices and fostering knowledge transfer through leading-edge content and audience engagement. Interactive sessions are designed to encourage delegate participation and facilitate discussion about critical DC issues.
