The current situation with Covid-19 has put additional strain on an already stretched charitable sector.
Many charities have faced a slump in income alongside rising demand for services putting an additional strain on charity finances. At the same time, The Pensions Regulator is consulting on a new defined benefit pensions funding code which could place additional pressure on charities to deal with pension fund deficits more quickly.
In this webinar, leading experts on charity pensions and pension regulation discuss the current financial environment, what is proposed by The Pensions Regulator, and how charities and their pension schemes can best respond. The event is chaired by LCP partner and former pensions minister Sir Steve Webb, and speakers include:
- Caron Bradshaw, Chief Executive, Charity Finance Group
- Dinesh Visavadia, Director, ITS Limited; and Trustee, Action for Children Pension Fund
- Mike Cranfield, Chair of the Investment Committee for the Cancer Research UK Pension Scheme
- Richard Soldan, Partner and Head of Charities, LCP
We aim to ensure that charities and their pension schemes are aware of the short term considerations that are relevant to them and the potential regulatory changes which could affect them in the years to come. This will help charities and their schemes respond to the current consultation to ensure that future regulation better reflects the particular circumstances of the charity sector.
