AMNT Open Meeting March 20th at AXA

Dear Member,

The next AMNT Open Meeting will take place on the afternoon of March 20th at AXA’s London offices, 7 Newgate Street, London, EC1A 7NX. Please do try to come along, though spaces are limited so book your place early to avoid disappointment.

The day will begin at 1100 am with a group training session on one of the latest modules of the Pensions Regulator’s Trustee Toolkit - strategic investment, This follows on from the fund management module we discussed at the last Open Meeting back in December. If you have not already completed these modules, these group discussions are a great way to find your way through.

A buffet lunch will be served at 12.30pm, which members are welcome to attend whether they have been to the morning training session or not.

The main open meeting will take place between 1.30pm and 5.30pm starting with an update of recent AMNT activity, including John Gray’s DB Defence Pack, which is aimed at helping trustees of DB schemes that are faced with closure.

Janice Turner will then go through a recent AMNT submission on smoothing which she has been leading. This will be followed by a presentation by our hosts AXA on how various overseas countries have approached the question of smoothing.

After a break for tea, Colin Meach will give a presentation on recent developments in Public Sector Pensions

Finally, the day will conclude with Robert Inglis, a Project Director from the Financial Reporting Council, explaining Technical Actuarial Standards (TASs), which have been in force for almost three years and getting feedback from the floor.

After the meeting has closed, there will be the usual networking opportunity with drinks provided by our hosts AXA
