Striking the balance: contribution deferrals and the road to recovery

Please join us on Wednesday 29 April at 3pm for our latest webinar – Striking the balance: contribution deferrals and the road to recovery.

Many DB pension schemes are facing requests to defer scheme contributions from stressed sponsors – and many others will face similar affordability debates down the line.  How can companies and trustees strike the right balance between scheme and sponsor needs as the situation evolves? Market practice on how to approach this important subject is rapidly evolving in real-time as trustees and their advisers look to balance their duties to protect members’ benefits whilst facing unprecedented challenges to covenant.

Chaired by 20-20 TrusteesKevin Dolan (who previously worked in the PPF’s Restructuring team) and Duncan Willsher (previously an investment consultant at Willis Towers Watson), the webinar will provide practical insight and expert views from the Trustee perspective, while Jane Evans from EY will share her experiences from a covenant advisory perspective. Neil Smith from CMS will contribute legal input and Mike Birch, Director of Supervision at The Pensions Regulator will provide valuable insight into the thoughts of The Pensions Regulator on the subject.

Our webinar will focus on experiences seen to date and ways in which they have been addressed as well as inviting questions from the audience.
