Isio’s Fiduciary Management Conference 2022

The focus of the conference will be on how to get the best out of your fiduciary manager throughout the “lifecycle” of your pension scheme, from earlier higher growth stages to later slow and steady states – with insights from key industry figures (see below). This will also be a great forum for trustees to share their experiences with each other.

When? Tuesday 29 November 2022 from 1pm, followed by networking drinks
Where? The Westin Hotel (London City), 60 Upper Thames Street, London EC4V
Who is it for? 
The afternoon event is aimed at pension scheme trustees, pension managers and sponsors - either considering fiduciary management as an option, or with a fiduciary manager already in place.
