Cork Pensions Seminar


  • Disruption of Market: An overview of all the factors leading to a move to transfers from DC and DB schemes to new arrangements
  • Managing Wind-ups & Transfers: Key issues in planning and managing the fallout
  • Key issues in a DC world: Value proposition, PRB and investment selection
  • Panel discussion

This seminar is aimed at Finance, HR and Benefit managers and would also be informative for trustees of group pension plans.

Michael Fitzgerald and John Grant of Fitzgerald Actuarial, both experienced pension professionals, will examine the drivers for change and the practical steps needed to be taken by employers and trustees as we move inexorably to a world of defined contribution (DC) schemes and the key issues in evaluating DC arrangements.

DC arrangements will also have to transform, in preparation for auto-enrolment. Rose Leonard, Head of Corporate Distribution & Customer Relationships, of Zurich will look at value propositions in this new DC world.

The Cork Seminar starts promptly at 11:00 on 4th December 2019 and is followed by a buffet lunch at 12:30. The Seminar is being held in the Clayton Hotel, Lapp’s Quay, Cork, T12 RD6E.
