Aon experts are joined by Margaret Snowdon to discuss the new transfer regulations and how trustees can better protect their members from pension scams. We also delve into current topical issues such as how schemes can better support members in a period of high inflation and provide insights from our first completed GMP conversion and Pension Increase Exchange exercise.
