***UPDATE 25/07/2017 - THE PENSIONS REGULATOR (TPR) CONFIRMED TO SPEAK***
You may have seen articles in the press recently about how smaller pension schemes under-perform their larger counterparts. This follows on swiftly from the FCA’s recently published Asset Management Market Study which highlighted the challenges faced by smaller schemes in gaining ready access to the same investment opportunities enjoyed by their larger peers.
We don't believe this should be the case.
As a firm with a long history of engagement with smaller schemes, we at River and Mercantile are only too aware of the challenges these schemes can face. On September 28, we will be hosting the first Small Schemes’ Summit in an attempt to improve the balance and the set of information and tools available to pension schemes, regardless of their size.
The event, which will be completely free to attend, will bring together representatives from smaller pension schemes (typically schemes between £10m and £500m) and experts across the industry to discuss challenges smaller schemes face, and the possible solutions.
We’d love it if you would join us, whether you simply want to be a member of the audience or a participant in a series of short discussion sessions.
Once registered, we’ll ensure you get all the updates on the summit as soon as they’re available, and we’ll seek your views on what topics you’d like to see covered as part of the event.
