By bringing together pension fund representatives, both trustees and managers, with advisers and service providers, robust and objective discussions have become the norm. A key requirement for all non-pension fund members and speakers is that product or services selling is not permitted. Bi-monthly seminars are usually held in the City of London and take place over lunch at various livery halls such as The Pewterers’ Hall. There are two categories of membership, one made up of representatives of corporate and local authority pension funds or the sponsoring employer of such pension funds and the other representatives from service and product providers to the DC market. The Forum is advised by an Advisory Committee, comprising only pension fund representatives, that ensures that the topics being discussed are relevant and helpful.
