The EU Referendum: Key Risks facing the Government and the Pensions Industry, and the Controllable Factors necessary to mitigate those risks

Following the UK’s majority vote to leave the EU on 23 June 2016, we took the opportunity at the recent mallowstreet Summit to find out what are the key concerns for Trustees in the wake of the Brexit vote.

We were joined by 30 Delegates, comprising of 20 CIOs & Trustees responsible for approximately £200 billion of DB pension assets, 10 asset management professionals who collectively cover 5 asset classes.

This session was chaired by Dawid Konotey-Ahulu, co-founder of mallowstreet and the delegates were split into groups of 5. Each group had to answer these three questions:

  1. What are the key risks now facing pension schemes?

  2. What key factors can and should the government control?

  3. What key factors can and should pension schemes control?
