Conference Overview

Welcome to our 24th annual conference on retirement income – the first of this series in a virtual format but with the same purpose: delivering in-depth analysis and discussion on the key issues the sector is facing.

The theme this year is Supporting Sustainable Retirement Journeys, which is coming into sharper focus due to economic conditions and the imminent introduction of investment pathways. It is increasingly evident that the sector needs to innovate more to meet the sustainability challenge and, as retirees’ needs become more complex, guidance and advice must also adapt. This conference will include session on:

  • Market analysis on how COVID-19 has impacted the drawdown and annuities market
  • How blended drawdown can deliver more sustainable retirement income
  • MaPS strategy for financial wellbeing and goals for decumulation
  • Case studies on adapting retirement journeys for better outcomes
  • Innovating retirement products and platforms
  • Centralised retirement propositions and default investment pathways

For the full programme please request the brochure.


The conference will include senior representatives from:
