Burges Salmon’s Pensions and Restructuring teams, who acted for the Trustees on the Silentnight Case, together with the Valuations team, a part of the Financial Advisory and Consulting team at Mazars, who were one of the principal experts in the Silentnight case, hosted this webinar to share their insights on the Pensions Regulator’s powers in practice.

In this webinar, we considered the Pension Schemes Act 2021 (PSA) in light of our joint practical experience on this case, other Pensions Regulator (TPR) investigations and recent Pension Covenant Advisory projects.

In addition to summarising the Regulator‘s new powers, we looked at how we think the PSA will apply the new rules in practice and, in light of these new obligations, provided some practical guidance on how key stakeholders may need to adapt their approach when looking to understand and then monitor the key drivers of employer performance and valuation in the context of their pension obligations.

We also performed a demonstration of our new Burges Salmon PSA Triage Tool which is designed to help employers and trustees to navigate the new powers and make practical decisions following business events.

Clive Pugh (Burges Salmon), Andrew Eaton (Burges Salmon), Helen Cracknell (Burges Salmon), Stephen Skeels (Mazars) and Mark Boughey (Mazars) presented the webinar which was relevant for pensions trustees, employers, lenders and practitioners.

We hope you will find this conversation useful and if you have any questions on the topics which were covered, please do get in touch.
