Helping DB and LGPS funds and DC schemes deal with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic

Pension fund governance bodies are facing a number of tough questions about administration, governance, communications, covenant strength, funding and investment.

We’ve gained insight from our Policy Board, committees and advisory groups and surveyed our members to help us put together resources for our members during difficult times.

Our top tips checklists for DB and LGPS funds and for DC schemes cover the issues to consider and the best practice we’re already seeing in the industry.

Our webinar series looks at how this best practice is put into action by our members in areas such as communications, investment and dealing with The Pensions Regulator.

We’ve also got blogs on some of the key issues for the sector during the crisis.

We’re here to back our members. Please get in touch if there is anything we can do to help you respond to the challenges you face.

Our top tips will help DB, LGPS and DC funds deal with short-term issues and prepare for the longer-term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Our webinars bring industry experts to your screen to help you deal with the challenges of Covid-19. Find past webinars below. Find upcoming webinars here.
