Annual Conference 2020

Pensions, economy, society

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association would like to thank all the delegates, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors that helped make our first digital Annual Conference such a great success. We look forward to welcoming you again next time.

If you attended the event you can access the content via the event platform until 13 November.

About the event

As the economy and our society go through the most dramatic shift in living memory, the pensions industry is working to picture the future, to invest for the future and to provide for the future. 

The challenge to provide financial wellbeing for savers, provide financial products that work for a new type of retirement, invest in a way that protects our environment and society, and learn to withstand future shocks has never been greater.

Face the future at the PLSA Annual Conference in October 2020.

Online means opportunity
