Quarterly Legal Update Winter 2012

Thursday 09 February 2012

Our 'Quarterly Legal Update' is designed to provide an essential overview to both employers and trustees of significant developments affecting occupational pension provision in the UK.

We will consider the key legal issues arising over the last quarter impacting on the pensions industry (and also take a look ahead at what the pensions future holds) by concentrating on the following four areas:

  • Pensions reform
  • Legislation
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Case law 

The session will include a spotlight on the latest changes to the Employer Debt Regulations which come into force on 27 January 2012. We will explain the key changes, the background to them and the impact they are likely to have on pension schemes going forward. In particular, we will focus on the new "flexible apportionment arrangement" option – the latest in a long line of attempts to allow greater flexibility for corporate activity, while maintaining sufficient protection for scheme members.
