Whether advisers like it or not, defined benefit transfers have done more to shape the the advice profession, and its perception among the public, than many other issues.
But, at a time when the future for transfers was already uncertain, the spread of the coronavirus has shaken things up still further, freezing parts of the market and leaving transfer values up in the air.
Meanwhile the Financial Conduct Authority has put its proposed changes to contingent charging on hold while it tackles the financial and economic effects of the pandemic.
On Thursday at 12.30pm, FTAdviser together with a panel of experts will discuss how these issues affect advisers , and take your questions.
We will be joined by:
- Steven Cameron, pensions director at Aegon
- Simon Harrington, senior policy adviser at adviser trade body Pimfa
- Amy Austin, senior pensions reporter on FTAdviser and Financial Adviser
