  • 10.30 - 11.15: Market Update

    A panel of renowned industry experts join us to take a journey through the UK and global markets and tackle some of the biggest questions of the moment:

    • Is political uncertainty only certainty we have for the next few years?
    • Is cryptocurrency finally about to have its day?
    • Is it all doom and gloom for UK retail funds?
    • Peter Elston, CIO, Seneca
    • Vincent Ropers, Co-portfolio Manager, Wise Funds
    • Ben Gilbert, HC Verbatim Portfolio 5 Income Fund Investment Manager, Verbatim
  • 11.20 – 11.50: Vulnerability, freedom and the new later life

    With vulnerable clients increasingly in the regulator's sights, and a growing area of interest and concern for both advisers and their clients, leading sector figures including Steve Webb and The SimplyBiz Group’s own Richard Nuttall join the panel to explore the changing face of vulnerability.  In addition, they’ll be looking at how this issue overlaps with new definitions and challenges in the later life market, with an overview of the pensions dashboard and where we are with freedoms.

    The panel will, of course, also be answering any of your burning questions too!

  • 12.15 – 12.35: The changing needs of your clients

    The DB pension transfer market has increased in not only size but also complexity over the past few years, not to mention the heightening focus from the regulator in this area. 

    This session will explore the world of DB in detail, with a focus on compliance, processes and when, and why, outsourcing might be the best option for you and your clients. 

    Whilst increasing numbers of advisers are making moves to ensure their offering is as holistic as they can, it’s not always possible to be all things to all clients.  In addition to our DB specialists, we’ll also be joined by experts in the legal and referrals market to examine the changing needs of the client, how to decide whether outsourcing or giving advice is the answer and how to ensure you’re working with the best partners for your business, and your clients.
