Our latest Global Pension Risk Survey demonstrates how schemes are evolving their risk management policies to cover a wider range of risks as they continue their journey. This webinar talked through the survey findings.

During this 30-minute webinar, Joe Moore summarised the key pensions news from a corporate perspective over this last quarter, Rupert Kotowski shared the key takeaways from our recent Global Pension Risk Survey, and Louise Gibbs discussed insights from our Accounting Strategy team.

2020 was an historic year for volatility, and 2021 has been an historic year for recovery, so what does 2022 have in store? In this webinar replay, Aon’s Accounting Strategy Team share insights to ensure you are fully briefed on current issues and what actions you can take to achieve your objectives.

Pension dashboards are finally set to become a reality. At this webinar we were joined by the Pensions Dashboard Programme’s Head of Onboarding, Paul Noone, to explore the requirements in more detail.

The third in our quarterly webinar series shared updates on current pensions issues from a corporate perspective. Alongside a summary of the 'need to know' headlines from the last three months, the webinar focused on how schemes can unlock value via GMP equalisation.

Exploring three distinct areas with one common theme: what have recent experiences taught us to improve things for pension schemes and their members in future?

Aon’s DC Live week shared latest thinking and thought leadership across a range of topics – from checking whether your scheme is on track to deliver adequate retirement outcomes, and finding out what schemes are really doing about Responsible Investing, to how the industry is waking up to providing better support at retirement. All sessions now available on demand.
