Our viewpoint

Survival or success? 
How to navigate choppy waters and a surge of regulation

At LCP's first ever hybrid conference, we took a deep dive under the waves of the current regulatory changes to address all those connected with pension schemes – trustees, sponsors and administrators – in a way like never before.  

In such a fast-paced world with ever-increasing regulatory requirements, we reflected on some of the bigger issues affecting schemes right now. Our conference covered a range of topical subjects from climate change to pension scams.
