Summer Series Trustee Training

We recently hosted the first in a series of Trustee training webinars and shared some Irish Life insights on key regulatory and current market challenges facing Trustees and their advisers in 2020.

You can listen to our first webinar here.

These are some key points from the first webinar. The investment themes we see emerging in 2020 are:

  • DB: matching portfolio reviews, diversification in growth portfolios and bulk annuities as an investment asset class;
  • DC: review of default strategy/lifestyling, interest in ESG fund options from members and white labelling of funds.
  • Pension related impacts from Covid 19 which Trustees need to be aware of – including risk benefits over, cessation of contributions and the temporary wage subsidy provisions.
  • The EU Supplementary Pension Rights Regulations 2019 are now impacting on leavers with less than 2 years’ service.

We will continue to support you throughout this crisis and have more sessions planned for the Summer Series of Trustee Training in July and August so please look out for your invite. Each session carries 0.5 hours CPD.
