South London Group Event

Our first session (Part 1) explored the extra value quality data can offer with speakers from Just Group Plc, the Pensions Dashboards Programme and Barnett Waddingham.  You can watch the session recording via this link -  The value of quality data - 28 September 2021.

In our second session
(Part 2), we have speakers from Muse and ITM both of whom have first-hand experience of helping schemes improve the data they hold and will share this experience including case studies. This will be of keen interest for all schemes where the need for quality data will become more pressing and will include a focus on how smaller schemes particularly can improve data quality without breaking the bank. 

Part 2 – Getting data right without breaking the bank

Tuesday,  23 November | Webinar | 5.00 - 6.00 pm

SpeakerDamon Lacey from Muse Advisory 

Damon is a Senior Consultant at Muse Advisory, the leading independent governance and pensions management consultancy. Damon started his career in pensions as an administrator at a large third-party administrator where he spent two years confronting first hand the difficulties with poor data.  He joined Muse Advisory in 2013 to help trustees and sponsors improve their administration and governance. Damon leads Muse Advisory’s supplier research, ensuring that he and colleagues are able to share the latest insights with clients.

Data is a critical part of administration and is the bedrock of an accurate day-to-day service. Beyond that, it is an essential part of everything the Trustee Board may wish to do as part of their strategic journey; member options exercises, buy-ins, buy-outs and efficient administration all rely on good data.

Damon’s work has given him insights into how data can impact the ability to deliver the trustee strategy and how it can be improved and maintained to ensure it doesn’t prevent key projects from happening as planned.

Speaker:  Mark Adamson from ITM

For some reason I have yet to fathom, I have worked in the pensions administration sector for over 30 years, mainly for TPAs (I’ve been MD of two), software firms and now for the UK’s leading pensions data specialist.

I am known as a champion of member engagement and was a founder Director of PASA. I have spoken at and chaired dozens of conferences and written many trade press articles. 

Married with two grown-up daughters, I live in Somerset. Interests include watching cricket and hockey (I no longer play!), Newcastle United (so, I’m not really a football fan) and pop music - indeed, I am proud to have created websites for three bands (keeping their fans in touch and selling them the bands’ merchandise!).
