Building world-class systems at the Annual Conference 2019

The biggest pensions event in the UK – the only place where the leaders of a £2 trillion industry that looks after the financial futures of everyone in the UK come together to share the ideas and build the relationships that make a difference. 

In 2019 we were building world class systems – exploring how 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.

Mind over markets: Investment Conference 2020

The human mind is both our biggest strength and our biggest weakness. In 2020 we considered how pension funds can better understand how the mind influences decisions, overcomes bias and manage risk in the complex and sophisticated world of investment.

When we met in March, just a couple of weeks before lockdown, the pressing need to tackle climate risk and secure the long-term future of our planet and our funds was rapidly being matched by the immediate risk of Covid-19. The times were unusual, but a great atmosphere and expert debate were typical of a PLSA event. 

LA Live

The changes impacting the Local Government Pension Scheme are vast and happening at an accelerated rate. This huge scheme and engaged community faces challenges like no other. 

In 2020 our annual PLSA Local Authority Conference at the Cotswolds Water Park was ruled out by the lockdown, but the PLSA brought together an even bigger than usual audience of 500 at LA Live - a week of webinars. Employer strength during the pandemic, administration, ESG and regulation were all on the agenda.
