Enjoy an evening with Rothesay at the Sky Garden to discuss end-game journey plans

Rothesay would like to invite you to join them in person for dinner at the Viñoly Room in the Sky Garden’s Fenchurch Restaurant on Thursday 22nd September to explore what the journey to buy-out might look like for your scheme, and the steps that will help you get there. They’ll also be discussing current industry trends and other de-risking solutions.

End-game planning is now an agenda item at most trustee meetings. Rising interest rates and the current inflationary environment both mean that many trustees are finding that their schemes have made significant funding gains. This, coupled with a slowdown in longevity improvements and the maturing of schemes has meant the end-game is no longer a distant spot on the horizon but now coming into focus for an increasing number of schemes.

There will be a drinks reception from 6:30pm with dinner commencing at 7pm and the evening drawing to a close at 9:30pm. The Fenchurch Restaurant at the Sky Garden is situated nearby various London Underground stations including Bank, Monument, Cannon Street and Fenchurch Street stations.

*Limited spaces available*


Thursday 22nd September 2022 from 6:30pm until 9:30pm
