Managing your local government pension scheme costs and risks
12 Jun 2017
With accounting reporting season upon us, now is the time to think about your pension costs and risks. The pension figures disclosed in your accounts have a material impact on your ability to carry out your normal business function, so it’s important the assumptions you use are accurate and reflect the characteristics of your specific organisation. In addition to this, there are a number of other pensions issues colleges should be considering, such as the long term affordability of your participation in the LGPS, and the impact a college merger could have on your scheme.
Our webinar highlighted how you can navigate these challenges and manage the costs and risks associated with your local government pension scheme. Our experts discussed:
