GMP Conversion and PIE (Pension Increase Exchange) - A Practical Guide

Chris and Andy will provide an overview of how combining GMP conversion with a Pension Increase Exchange (PIE) exercise can be a neat way for schemes to deal with GMP equalisation and at the same time provide members with valued additional benefit options. They'll focus on some of the practical aspects and barriers of carrying out such an exercise with the aim of giving delegates a clear understanding of how to move forward with a 'PIE conversion' project.
