CIPFA Pensions Annual Conference

Conference illustrative image

Event summary

This year will be considering the various aspects of good governance and how these are reflected in the LGPS landscape. In an increasingly complex environment the need to ensure decisions are effective will require strategies and procedures that deliver the best outcomes for all stakeholders and hold decision makers accountable. Funds will need to be regularly challenging asset managers and pool operators on crucial issues such as ESG in investments, cost transparency and performance. This will require a constant review of the available knowledge and skills leading to appropriate training and assessment of the advice and other services used by the funds.

With a focus on the economy, good governance and the reform process this conference will provide the thought leadership for all those involved in the scheme. It will enable delegates to come together and hear from experts on a range of topics and to discuss with peers how these changes will impact across funds of all sizes and locations.

Two free places are available for each organisation subscribed to the CIPFA Pensions Network. Please contact E: to book. Please note that this conference is only open to public sector delegates.
