Event description

The Pension Advisory Group’s long awaited A Guide to the Treatment of Pensions on Divorce identified a number of key issues including:

  • pensions are considered in far too few cases
  • they are little understood
  • valuations are often needed but not obtained and when valuations are obtained they are too complex
  • there is a wide variation in how pensions are approached
  • the parties and the court often lack sufficient information to make a fair assessment and settlements are made without enough thought being given to pensions

The widespread deficiency in knowledge is not only a hindrance to the client but also leaves professionals vulnerable to potential claims being brought against them.

It is vital that practitioners understand what to look out for when handling pensions and are able to identify when they should seek specialist pensions advice, so they are better placed to serve their clients with fair settlements and mitigate the potential claim of alleged negligence.

This seminar brings together, from different corners of the policy and practice process, the leading protagonists and thinkers in this debate to consider different disciplinary, social and industry perspectives on this incredibly thorny issue.
