PFS WEBINAR - FCA focus on pension transfers and the decumulation market

Monday, 14 September 2020
9:30 am – 10:30 am
    • Rory Percival

This session will not focus on the minutiae of the FCA Defined Benefit policy statement 20/6.

However, it will refer to the good (and bad) practice examples that accompanied the policy statement, with a view on how this is likely to impact upon future DB and DC pension advice.

The session will start at 09:30 promptly. It is advisable to log in 5-10 minutes early in case of any technical issues.

The presentation will last for 1 hour, followed by a short period for questions. Please send any questions before the event to Mark MacLean at

There will also be an opportunity to raise questions through the ‘chat’ option on the day.
