Our Changing Future: the 2007/8 talks begin

In 2006 a series of talks was launched through
the Faculty under the banner ‘Our Changing
Future’. The meetings are designed to be informal
and interactive, in order to encourage questions
and share experiences between the
audience and speakers. No reading or preparation
is required before each meeting.
Six meetings were run during the first year,
with each providing verifiable CPD. We were
extremely pleased with the level of attendance
and interaction at the meetings, and are pleased
to announce the launch of the 2007/8 season.
Our first meeting will be on 6 November and
will be introduced by the Faculty president,
Stewart Ritchie. Timings and venue are:
? Tuesday 6 November
Royal College of Physicians,
9 Queen Street, Edinburgh
8.30am coffee/tea
9am presentation and questions
10am close of meeting
The title of this first presentation is ‘Current
issues in retail pensions’, presented by Ian
Naismith, head of pensions market development
at Scottish Widows. Topics covered in this
presentation will include the impacts of A-Day
and the National Pension Savings Scheme, the
regulatory regime for providers and advisers,
the search for an alternative to with-profits, and
the development of new vehicles for providing
retirement income.
To reflect the great demand for these talks,
this year we have moved to larger premises at
the Royal College of Physicians, 9 Queen Street,
Edinburgh. Given the size of the new venue
there will no longer be any need to confirm
your attendance in advance. We also intend to
run one meeting in Glasgow early in 2008.
The remaining talks for the 2007/8 season are
being finalised and will be emailed by the
Faculty to all members shortly.
