Panel: LTAFs: the answer to the private markets riddle or a damp squib?
LTAFs were launched with great fanfare – but so far only a handful have launched. What’s delaying progress in this area? Are schemes finding other ways to access private markets? Will the path to greater access to private markets be smoother once schemes are bigger?

Panel: Decumulation
What happens when members stop work? Researchers are following people through their retirement years. Their observations should help pension schemes to learn important lessons about how to help people navigate their later lives. What does the industry need to do to make decumulation better? What solutions are emerging to smooth the path from accumulation into decumulation?
