We’re proud to be headline sponsor for this year’s Professional Pensions Risk Reduction Forum. Join us to hear from risk management experts, including our own Danny Wilding and Chris Ramsey.

The Pension Regulator (TPR) has stressed the importance of managing and settling pensions risk as arguably the foremost objective for the UK's DB pension schemes. The Professional Pensions Risk Reduction Forum aims to give trustees and senior pension decision-makers a holistic and comprehensive view of what de-risking really means for schemes.

Contingency planning for DB pension schemes

As a trustee, are you aware of what the biggest risks are to your pension scheme? Watch our risk management expert, Chris Ramsey, explain the importance of contingency planning for DB pensions schemes.

How to contingency plan

TPR expects all schemes to plan for contingency. However, when we surveyed trustees on risk management, only 17% had a formal strategy. What should trustees be doing? Our briefing note explains how to manage risk holistically.

We help our clients to see the big picture and to take a truly integrated approach to the risk management of their DB pension scheme. Good risk management of DB pension schemes is becoming increasingly important as they mature. We recognise that every scheme is different and will help you identify the key issues for your scheme.

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has also emphasised the importance of risk management through its guidance to trustees on Integrated Risk Management (IRM).

A practical guide to IRM

In December 2015, TPR released its guidance for trustees on IRM. This focuses on the interaction of the funding, investment and covenant risks in a scheme when making decisions.

But what benefit does IRM have for trustees and employers and how should they apply this in practice?
