The National Housing Federation confirms its line up for the 2009 pensions conference
Wednesday, 29 July 2009
This event comes at a vital time for the housing sector, with major shifts in the nature of employer pension provision and the raft of changes introduced, most recently by the Pensions Act 2007. The changes are designed to deliver increased financial security for an ageing population and encourage millions of workers to change the way they save.
Taking place on 10 September at the Wellcome Collection Conference Centre in London this important conference will address important topics such as the issues surrounding the new legislation, Personal Accounts and accounting requirements for pension fund deficits.
Key speakers include:
. Phil Winters of the Tenant Services Authority discussing the regulatory impacts
. Mark Jennings from PricewaterhouseCoopers highlighting pension fund deficits and accountancy implications
. Paul Coward representing The Pensions Trust who will outline their latest policies.
The conference willl provide an excellent opportunity to get an update on some of the topics that are currently affecting the pensions industry and the implications for the housing sector.
