What now for DB Schemes?

Two key issues face DB pension scheme managers, sponsors and trustees: How can they address the increasing risks and costs associated with their scheme in what appear to be challenging times and how could the continuing move from traditional pensions and retirement into the new world of flexibility, individual choice and pension alternatives benefit them?

This seminar hosted by Capita Employee Benefits and Walker Morris LLP addressed these challenges, discussed the options and provided practical insight and practical guidance. The seminar was delivered by experts to help attendees understand and plan their pension strategy for those new to pensions and those simply trying to stay abreast of developments,
