mallowstreet University Dinner: Navigating the Road to Buyout (Rothesay Life)

As pension funds map out their ‘end game’, many are working out how to fully transfer their liabilities to an insurer. Over dinner, Sammy Cooper-Smith from Rothesay Life will discuss the following areas and take Q&A on any topics related to risk settlement.

  • Does the quality of your data matter?
  • What makes an Insurer take one process more seriously than another?
  • Are there times where you can secure better pricing than others?
  • Are some benefits more expensive than others to insure?
  • Should you use new advisers to help run your process?

Please join us for what should be a fascinating discussion.

This dinner is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisors.
