JLT to host UK Pensions Industry briefing in June

Jardine Lloyd Thompson will host the UK Pensions Industry Briefing in Manchester on June 14, aimed at helping finance directors and pensions professionals plan their risk management.

The event aims to assist FDs and senior pensions decision makers in planning better strategies for controlling and mitigating risks associated with all forms of pensions provision.

Speakers will include Pensions Protection Fund director of investment & finance Dasgupta Partha and Shadow Minister for Works and Pensions David Willetts MP, as well as people from JLT and product providers.

The free event will be at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, starting at 9am.

JLT regional managing director Paul Clark says: The new Pensions Act comes into effect in April 2005, which will expose companies to much greater risks in running their pension scheme, many of these being hidden.

“The UK pensions industry briefing is designed to reveal some of the more material risks that will affect FDs and senior pensions decision makers and their companies. There will also be advice on how to manage these risks more effectively.
