Project de-risk: The DB journey planning summit

We held our inaugural derisking summit in 2019 to help schemes plan their DB de-risking journey, whatever their size and end game, in the best way possible.

“A fantastic event, there are so many trustees and pensions scheme representatives here, and what I really like is the event’s covered the whole spectrum, everything from data management through to strategic planning, it really has covered the whole de-risking journey,” said James Mullins, Head of Risk Transfer Solutions at Hymans Robertson.

The event at the London Waldorf Hilton was sponsored by Just and delivered in association with Pensions Age and over 160 guests attended. They heard from 20 industry experts including regulators, bulk annuity consultants and independent trustees who covered the importance of administration and data quality when preparing for derisking and included with case studies from the pension plans who have first-hand experience of success. Unlike many other events, all speakers were invited and no sessions were sponsored helping ensure content was educational.

“The summit today has been wonderful. If an event like this runs again in future, I’d encourage everyone to go and see the best speakers we’ve got from across the country,” commented Hugh Nolan, Senior Trustee Representative at Dalriada.

Our second summit was due to take place later this year. Due to Covid-19 it’s currently on hold, but we will be rescheduling. We’ll keep this page updated and be in contact with our 2019 registrants once our plans for the next summit are confirmed.
