Senior industry leaders will share their insights
Policyholder behaviours post pension freedoms have led to unintended consequences such as lump sum withdrawals sitting on current accounts (severe risk avoidance) or DIY equity investments (unprotected risk taking).

Meanwhile the standard safety mechanism in DC of rotating to bonds as retirement nears is not working well; bonds continue to have low yields impacting accumulation and they also have an increased incident of correlation with other asset classes that they are supposed to diversify from.

The inherent need for financial protection in retirement does not diminish with increased freedoms and more choice does not mean better products.

It comes down to your choice, your pension and your risk. Is there enough safety in current DC product offering?

Join us for this exclusive two-hour briefing, in association with Societe Generale, as our expert speakers explore all these topics and questions, along with the current landscape for pension savers, retirement strategies and how key players - employers, trustees and policymakers - can support savers’ pensions journeys.

Sessions will include:

• An exclusive interview with The Pensions Regulator David Fairs to gather insights tracing the impact of behavioural risk on retirement outcomes

• An expert panel moderated by the FT’s Global Pensions Correspondent, to explore these risks and the responses needed for better protection

• A fireside chat and view from the top from leaders at a renowned Pension Provider and a Pension Fund, assessing what’s next for pension savers and how to fill the gaps to improve savers’ pensions journey
