UK Pensions Training & Events

At Hogan Lovells, we run a comprehensive programme of pension training for clients and their advisers.

  • For new UK pension trustees: an annual full-day seminar covering all legal aspects of the Pensions Regulator's trustee knowledge and understanding (TKU) syllabus.
  • For experienced pension trustees: an annual half-day seminar considering legal developments in pensions in the previous 12 months and looking ahead to what can be expected in the following year.
  • For employers, pension professionals (and trustees): regular informal breakfast seminars reviewing legal developments over the previous few months and explaining the practical implications for pension schemes. These seminars can be more technical than those aimed specifically at trustees and assume a working knowledge of the basics of pension provision in the UK.
  • Interactive workshops: workshops for trustees and employers on a variety of topics such as: negotiating scheme funding agreements; issues specific to defined contribution (DC) arrangements; liability reduction exercises; amending schemes; dealing with ill health early retirement applications; and distributing death benefit lump sums.  Using case studies and group exercises, the emphasis is very much on audience participation!
  • One-off seminars: seminars on topical subjects such as auto-enrolment, investment and pensions, pension buyouts and buy-ins, and reducing pension liabilities.
  • Bespoke training: we are happy to arrange targeted training delivered by our pension lawyers for individual clients and trustees by agreement.

Alternative investments by pension schemes: avoiding the legal pitfalls

10 May 2017

Alternative investments by pension schemes: avoiding the legal pitfalls

Pension scheme trustees are increasingly encouraged to consider alternative investments as a means of delivering returns and diversifying their portfolios. A wide range of opportunities is available – but alternative investments present different legal risks which should be understood and addressed before signing up to new investments.

At this half-day pension seminar, experts from the Hogan Lovells pensions, real estate, banking and corporate teams together with a guest speaker from Aon Hewitt, will consider the legal aspects of alternative investments for pension schemes.
