Two LawDeb Pension Trustees attend NAPF Annual Conference
07 November 2013
Sue Timbrell and Andrew Parker represented LawDeb Pension Trustees at the NAPF’s Annual Conference in Manchester.
As well as attending sessions on topical pensions issues, including ones led by Minister for Pensions Steve Webb MP and Robert Peston, BBC News’ Business Editor – they took the opportunity to renew contacts with fellow attendees.
Sue chaired one of the breakout sessions on the question of the costs of outsourcing the execution of a scheme’s plan – most particularly the explicit costs involved and the implicit costs of getting it wrong.
The Conference was opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in a pre-recorded video – in which he challenged pension funds to take the lead in replacing quarterly capitalism with a more sustainable and resilient economic model.
This address was part of the Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability project – an ongoing initiative that works with the finance, accounting and investment community to help build a sustainable economy.
Earlier in the year over 100 guests gathered at St James’s Palace State Apartments to hear him speak on the subject. Sue Timbrell, in her capacity as a member of the NAPF’s Investment Council attended.
