Welcome to our Pension Manager Forum (PMF), a network of members made up of pension managers of UK pension schemes of different shapes and sizes.
Our forum allows our members to connect with likeminded peers and discuss what’s going on in the industry, in a safe space. We listen to what our members need and expand on the areas at the top of their agenda. All discussions are held under Chatham House rules.
Recent discussions have included the below topics:
- Diversity and inclusion
We hold (mainly) virtual sessions every six weeks or so, with the opportunity to attend those sessions which you feel are most valuable.

Are you ready for the ORA?
The new General Code have been introduced as a requirement for Trustees to have a risk management function and an effective system of governance in place accompanied by with an ‘Own Risk Assessment’.
In our latest Pension Manager Forum event we welcomed Adam Lickorish, our Risk Assurance Associate Director, where he discussed the challenges around understanding control effectiveness and shared different approaches to managing and overseeing this in a proportionate and pragmatic way.
Cyber risk – what are schemes doing in practice?
In our Pension Manager Forum session we welcomed Richard Curtis, our technology and cyber risk assurance director, who looked at the cyber-attack on Capita in March 2023, together with what we have seen in practice when performing cyber assurance work for pension schemes, and how the forthcoming Regulator’s Code is shaping the approach to cyber. Joined by Elisabeth Storey from our pensions team to tackle this challenging subject and to offer some practical advice to pension managers.
