As it happened: DB transfer Q&A


Whether advisers like it or not, defined benefit transfers have done more to shape the rules around the advice profession, and its perception among the public, than many other issues.

But the spread of the coronavirus has shaken this up, freezing the market and sending transfer values tumbling.

Meanwhile the Financial Conduct Authority has put its rule changes on hold while it tackles the financial and economic effects of the pandemic.

Together with our panel of experts, we will discuss how this affects advisers and the wider market, and take your questions in the live blog below.

We are joined by:

  • Steven Cameron, pensions director at Aegon
  • Simon Harrington, senior policy adviser at adviser trade body Pimfa
  • Amy Austin, senior pensions reporter at FTAdviser
