    Partner and Head of DB Endgame Strategy

  • For a DB pension scheme, the journey towards the endgame requires a strategy that is firm yet flexible. Firm enough to provide both assurance and direction at any point in time, but flexible enough to adapt to near- and long-term requirements, including unexpected obstacles and opportunities. 


    In this video panel discussion from the Pension Fund Forum 2022, Barnett Waddingham's Ian Mills, Head of DB Endgame Strategy, discusses:

    • the different endgame challenges facing large and small schemes
    • why schemes should be 'working backwards' from their ultimate objectives
    • inflation and the risks of schemes trying to 'time the market'
    • ...and much more

    Ian is joined by Mark Johnston, Trustee Director, 2020 Trustees and Tom Seecharan, Business Development, Rothesay.
