Conference Overview

The DB transfers market continues to face capacity issues. The sharp increase in PII premiums and further regulatory intervention have led to an exodus of advisers from the market, reducing consumer access to the necessary, government-mandated, financial advice. In addition, negative publicity around poor practice and scams persists and transfer related complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service increased by 44% during 2020.

What is the solution to lack of capacity?

How can outcomes be improved and risks reduced?

The 9th DB to DC Transfers Conference will address these questions and more, with case study presentations on abridged advice, bridging options and adopting a bulk advice approach for a scheme; an update from The Pensions Regulator on how consumers can be protected against bad advice; and expert analysis of the FCA’s Finalised Guidance and how this is impacting the market.
