PLSA annual conference & exhibition 2017 - decoding the future

PLSA Annual Conference & Exhibition 2017

Decoding the future -18-20 October, Manchester


This is the most important annual event for anyone involved in pensions, attracting 1,500 top industry professionals and over 80 exhibition stands.

Everything is changing - or so it seems. The way we live, work, save and retire will never be the same again. The speakers and discussions at the PLSA's Annual Conference & Exhibition will help delegates to decode the future - to understand the forces shaping it and how to respond to them.

Programme highlights include Guy Opperman, Pensions Minister and a series of leaders from pensions and government setting out their plans for the future.

Professor Lynda Gratton, author of The 100-year Life, joins us to lead a debate on how increasing longevity will transform society.

'Gig economy' expert Matthew Taylor will explain why the government should accept his recommendations on helping workers in this growing sector to save. And journalist Matt Frei will help us make sense of global politics, business and economics.

The event attracts everyone from trustees, pension managers and finance directors who control assets worth billions of pounds, to HR specialists responsible for workforces of thousands of people.

Keynote speakers not to be missed:

  • Guy Opperman MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Pensions and Financial Inclusion; Lesley Titcomb, Chief Executive, The Pensions Regulator;
  • Andy Briggs, Chief Executive Officer of Aviva UK Insurance and Chair, ABI;
  • Professor Lynda Gratton, Author, The 100-year Life;
  • Professor Nick Bostrom, Author of Superintelligence and AI thought leader;
  • Matthew Taylor, Head, Independent Review of Employment Practices in the Modern Economy; and Matt Frei, Journalist.
