‘Important New Updates & Developments’

Is your pension a self-directed pension plan? An executive pension? A one-member scheme perhaps? New rules that will impact on many of us and our clients for schemes post-April 2021, for example, include the restriction on the proportion of a pension fund that can be invested in property. The whole area of pensions has seen sweeping changes recently, with more to come.

In this webinar, pension experts Gerard Keane and Danny McGill, Directors of Newcourt Retirement Fund Managers Ltd / Newcourt Pensioneer Trustees Ltd., explore these developments and their implications and ask the practical questions like:

  • What else for Pensions 2022/2023?
  • Has 2022 seen the end of the executive pension arrangement?.....if so, what are the solutions and what can advisors do with their company director clients?
  • What has the budget delivered, what changes if any have come to pass and how will this affect advisors?
  • Is Master Trust for executive pensions the solution, if so, what could this look like?

Other Topics Covered Include:

  • The Interdepartmental Pensions Reform and Taxation Group Proposals
  • Finance Act, 2021
  • Implications for one-member schemes
  • Solutions
  • Master Trust -v- Own Trust
  • Budget 2023
