    The DWP has recently published new draft regulations to implement the changes in the funding regime for DB pensions that will apply from next year.

    These regulations have the potential to transform the funding landscape for smaller pension schemes and significantly restrict flexibility and increase corporate contributions.

    This 1-hour webinar is aimed at all those involved in the running of smaller defined benefit pension schemes, including sponsors and trustees. Hosted by Stoneport, we are delighted that investment expert and independent trustee Tegs Harding, from ITS, will also join this webinar as guest presenter.  

    The webinar will provide an oversight of the new proposed regime, as it applies to smaller DB schemes, and will cover the following:

    • What are the new proposed regulations all about?
    • When and what is significant maturity?
    • What are the investment implications of the new regime?
    • What are the funding implications of the new regime?
    The Stoneport difference
