Annual Conference & Exhibition
Previous page

Exploring how we create world-class pensions systems is the focus of the 2019 PLSA Annual Conference & Exhibition.

We know what world-class means. Well-run schemes that work in savers’ interests. Higher contributions to get more money into pension savings. Schemes that offer value for money, whatever their scale. Effective engagement to help people make the right decisions. 

We know we’re moving in the right direction. Automatic enrolment has been a huge success. The pensions freedoms have changed the way people make decisions about their savings. New thinking across every aspect of the pensions system – ESG, fintech, dashboards, TPR future, Superfunds, retirement income targets – is changing the way we approach the governance, investment, administration and management of people’s financial futures.

And we know there is more to learn. What’s driving the future of our industry? What can international models teach us? How can we build a pensions system that everyone can really trust?

Network with other industry leaders. Discover new thinking. Gain the expertise to make a difference. 

Join the debate at the pensions event of the year.
