Smith & Williamson Investment Management is delighted to be hosting a seminar for members of Defined Benefit pension schemes, which may be of relevance to you or another interested party.

The number of Defined Benefit schemes in Ireland fell from 2,557 in 1991 to 1,541 in 2003 and fell further to 628 by the end of March 2017*. Many people are wondering whether their pension scheme will still be there when they retire.

This unique event for members of Defined Benefit pension schemes will attempt to answer this question and many more.
