17 March – Free ‘Getting to Grips With Pension Freedom Rule Changes’ Event

17 March – Free ‘Getting to Grips With Pension Freedom Rule Changes’ Event

New ‘pension freedom’ rules will come into effect on April 6 and TheBusinessDesk.com is partnering with regional financial services specialist Wealth Design at a free to attend event outlining what those changes will mean for you, your business and your clients.

Much has been written about the death of the annuity and whether the ‘Lamborghini factor’ will see many pension plan holders ‘blow the lot’, but the changes go a lot deeper than those headlines.

David Phillips, a director at Cannock-based pension specialist Wealth Design, will be one of the speakers at the event, which takes place at 8am for an 8.30am start at Opus Restaurant in Cornwall Street, Birmingham, on Tuesday March 17.

Other speakers are being lined up for the event and will be announced in due course.

The intention of the event is to simplify changes to the pension regime for a business audience.

As Phillips said: “In 2006 the Government introduced ‘pension simplification’ but the world of pensions is as complicated as ever.”
