Conference Overview

The DC landscape is changing rapidly, with further consolidation expected and a continuing shift to master trusts. It is anticipated that by 2026, master trust assets will grow from £35bn to £400bn. Regulatory pressures on smaller DC schemes is likely to accelerate this trend with many seeing the benefit of outsourcing DC delivery.

Other key drivers of transformation in the market include default fund design becoming increasingly sophisticated, ESG integration, and a rise in pot consolidation which will progress further with the implementation of the pensions dashboard.

This conference will explore the key trends and developments in DC workplace pensions, including the important role of master trusts, and consider what these mean for the industry, schemes and members.
