Schroders Defined Contribution Conference 2017

About

In what looks set to be another eventful year for pensions, we believe it will be more important than ever for trustees and sponsors to keep their eye on the horizon. The theme running through this year's Defined Contribution Conference will therefore be maintaining the focus on the long term.

The half-day event will bring together a range of Schroders expertise on DC and will be held at the Royal Institute of British Architects. As always, Keith Wade will provide the context by looking at the wider economic factors affecting UK pensions.

There is no charge for attending. Members of some professional bodies may be able to claim CPD credits for attending this event.

Please note that delegate places are complimentary, but strictly reserved for pension schemes and employee benefits representatives. Applications to attend that do not meet our set criteria will not be accepted. This conference is not suitable for Local Authority Pension Funds. This event is not open to other asset managers or service providers.
