About First Actuarial's Current Issues training course

It’s not easy keeping up with the stream of changes in defined benefit pensions. And the legal penalties of acting on outdated information are becoming harsher. Our regular Current Issues courses help trustees plan for change.

Is this training course right for me?

If you’re a trustee of a defined benefit pension scheme, our half-day course is designed to bring you bang up to date on the latest issues in this area.

What does the course cover?

Topics that we expect to cover include:

  • PPF levy consultation: third triennium
  • Transfers and pensions freedoms two years on
  • Integrated Risk Management
    • The Pensions Regulator’s Annual Statement on Funding
    • The Pensions Regulator’s Investment Guidance
    • Putting Integrated Risk Management into practice
  • Update on GMPs
  • Current issues for DC schemes
  • Recent case studies
    • The Pensions Regulator uses its powers
    • The Pensions Ombudsman
  • On the radar

Our course convenors explain complex issues in simple and straightforward ways. They will also encourage informal discussion and exchange of ideas to help you benefit from the experiences of other scheme trustees.

First Actuarial Case Studies

Hachette UK

Hachette UK, one of the UK’s largest publishing groups, turned to First Actuarial to help improve staff engagement with pensions.

“One of the things I like about First Actuarial is that they’re very responsive. You never have to chase them for anything. They’re pragmatic and cost-effective.”



The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
