Throughout the week of 6 July 2020 we hosted our Pensions Academy Online - an update on issues for pension schemes and the people that run them. Recordings of our sessions can be found below.
Tough times for corporate sponsors: how does the pension scheme fit in?

Pension Schemes Bill: hazard warning?
Although the timetable has slipped due to Covid-19, the Pension Schemes Bill will make significant changes to moral hazard rules (including the introduction of new criminal offences) and defined benefit scheme funding. Here, we look at the implications for schemes, the people that run them and the sponsors that support them.

A legal update
Some legal and regulatory developments have gone on hold during the global Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, but for others the clock is still ticking. From SIP updates and implementation statements to wider governance issues, we guide you through what needs to be on your agenda.
