Pensions Compass September 2020

21 / 09 / 2020

Welcome to our Autumn 2020 Edition of Pensions Compass.

We hope readers have enjoyed some relaxation over the Summer.

1. PODCASTS – In the Autumn we usually hold our Oktoberfest pensions event including a chance to socialise over drinks and eats. Unfortunately, like so much, this is impossible this year and we will miss seeing you on our fine terrace at 71 Queen Victoria Street. Instead we are providing a series of podcasts on topical pension subjects and raise a metaphorical glass to you in lieu of Oktoberfest. The first two podcasts are as follows:
