Central London Group

Central London Group

Formed in 2014 following the merger of the City & Eastern Group and the West London Group, the Central London Group holds thought provoking sessions for members living or working in the City of London, East or West London and Essex. We provide a varied and interesting programme of events, including educational and networking opportunities for all those involved in the provision of work place pensions.

Meetings are normally held in a central London location, starting at 5:30pm with a presentation by one or more leading practitioners on a relevant topic. This invariably results in a lively question and answer session after the presentation. Our normal practice is to provide refreshments at about 7:00pm, giving members the opportunity to network and discuss matters of mutual interest in an informal atmosphere.


£75 covering the year from 1 April to 31 March per member organisation or £25 for individual members.  Subscription includes free attendance at sessional meetings regardless of the number of attendees from the member organisation, although numbers may be limited at some meetings.  Attendance at the Annual Dinner is charged in addition to the annual subscription.

London Central Breakfast Meeting

The quiet revolution: Transferring schemes to a DC Master trust
Legal, trustee and practical issues

Time: 8.30am for 9am start - 10.15am
Venue: CMS, 78 Cannon Street, London EC4N 6AF

While we have heard much in the press about consolidating DB pension schemes there has been a growing trend for employers to transfer their DC pension schemes to DC Master trusts, mainly in pursuit of lower charges, efficiency and better governance – some of the key themes in the pensions market at the moment.  This session will look at various issues involved in this process from the point of view of three of the key players involved – A DC master trust, a pension scheme trustee and a lawyer. 

The DC Master Trust perspective : David Bird (LifeSight)   
The trustee perspective: Venetia Trayhurn (Law Debenture) 
The legal perspective:  Stephen Richards (Stephenson Harwood)
