The May Pension Play Pen Lunch will be held in the back gallery room of the Counting House – 50 Cornhill, London EC3 ( 250 yards to the East of Bank Station).
We’ll be discussing whether we need in retirement default options or whether everyone should be forced to decide what happens to their accumulated pension pots.
This has big implications for
1. Fund managers who may want to invest post retirement funds
2. Insurers- who may wish to offer these as continuation options for existing savers
3.Master trusts and occupational pension trustees – as per insurers
4.Advisers who may find themselves “guiding”, “advising” or sidelined.
5.Anyone who has DC benefits and is interested in what’s going to happen from this time next year.
If you want to come, there is no need to do anything but turn up with £15 or a credit card in your pocket. We split the bill but it always comes out at £15, any balance goes to our hosts.
We wrap up by 2 with the final twenty minutes usually devoted to informal chat (and me paying the bill).
Looking forward to seeing you there. If you can’t make it, make sure you close off every first business Monday of the month for the rest of the year
