Our second session of the "Governance in Action" breakfast series looks at all aspects of pension scheme governance, focusing on the importance of good governance in an investment context.

The drive for good investment governance has gathered significant pace over the past 3-5 years and this is only set to continue in 2020 and beyond. Trustees are subject to more stringent legal and regulatory requirements than ever before - they need to ensure that investments are suitably diverse, reflect their appetite to risk, funding targets and investment strategy, whilst also taking into account ESG considerations, including climate change, ethical factors and members’ views - a difficult balancing act!

Join a panel of our pensions experts and well-known figures in the industry for a session on:

  • How a robust governance framework and diversity in the investment chain can help to maximise investment returns and ensure that members receive good value.
  • The extent of trustees’ investment duties in relation to ESG, climate change and investment in illiquid assets and how to reconcile these duties with the duty to act in members’ best financial interests.
  • Costs transparency and how to engage with, and monitor, investment managers and platform providers with the new SIP and CMA Order requirements in 2020.

This webinar is aimed at trustees, employers and providers of both DB and DC schemes.
