Conference Overview

This conference is the main annual occasion for the leading insurers, reinsurers, pension consultants, pension asset managers and lawyers to come together to exchange views on the latest developments and opportunities in the pension risk transfer market and the factors which will shape it in the year ahead.

Following the Covid necessitated postponement in 2020, and the virtual event in 2021, we are delighted to announce a return to an in-person format for 2022. Based on the many kind comments we have received, it seems there is a real appetite to gather again in-person and we very much look forward to welcoming you.

Please request the programme to see the conference agenda.

The 2022 programme features nineteen speakers who have not spoken at any of our previous bulk annuity conferences and seven who are making a welcome return. To have so many new speakers the nineteenth time we have held the event is testimony to the continued growth and vibrancy of the market. We are delighted to welcome senior representatives from:
