2020 Fiduciary Focus Dates Added
07 -08 May 2020
Since 1996, Pension Focus Conference has been the premier educational experience for plan sponsors, giving fiduciaries valuable insight on how they can successfully execute their duties and responsibilities. This year, we’re putting the full focus on those who take on the important roles of plan oversight and administration.
Pension Focus Conference is now Fiduciary Focus Conference!
As fulfillment of regulatory requirements becomes a standard part of managing retirement plans, fiduciaries have an increasing understanding of how to handle those requirements. However, these same fiduciaries are missing the information they need to understand whether or not they are providing a good plan for their employees.
Our focus is on you, the plan fiduciaries who want to get the best results for their participants, and who want confidence in the plan they are providing.
In addition to full-group sessions, this year’s conference will include workshop-style sessions that feature industry experts who work with fiduciaries like you every day. They’ll talk about how your role as a fiduciary impacts your plan’s performance, break down the different areas of plan performance, and explain how fiduciaries can gain confidence that the plans they oversee are ahead of the curve!
The conference agenda will feature more direct interaction, including four breakout sessions, an industry trends discussion, mock fiduciary scenarios, and an industry expert interview session!
