Pension Funds Governance and De-Risking Summit 2013 - Implementing effective de-risking strategies, underpinned by strong fund governance.

As market volatility and uncertainty continues, pension funds continue to search for effective de-risking strategies. Awareness for good governance now underpins these strategies, and as their complexity grows so does the need for immediate strong governance. It is clear that many trustees see both de-risking and good governance as important and crucial long term security measures for both not only their pension schemes, but also for their scheme members.

Hear from key speakers including:

Andrew Warwick-Thompson, Executive Director, The Pension Regulator

Margaret Snowdon OBE, Chairman, Pensions Administration Standards Association

Jerry Moriarty, Chief Executive Officer, Irish Association of Pension Funds

Philip Read, Trustee Board Chairman, British Coal Staff Superannuation Scheme

Nick Greenwood, Pension Fund Manager, The Royal County of Berkshire Pension Fund

Michael Johnson, Research Fellow, Centre for Policy Studies
