Welcome to the web pages of the PMI London Regional Group.  We hope that as many of you as possible will find an opportunity to participate in the Group’s activities.  Our aim is to provide a forum for anyone involved or interested in pension provision to learn, share experiences and socialise.  We welcome PMI members, Students and non-members alike.

Our members come from all walks of business life: public and private sectors, in-house schemes, consultancies, administration firms, law firms, investment managers, and others.

Our business meetings offer the highest quality speakers on topics that are shaping the pensions agenda.  Each meeting is followed by drinks offering a valuable networking opportunity.

Our social meetings provide a variety of activities over the year with mixing and socialising in mind.

Our education events offer general guidance to Students, and opportunities to meet examiners, as well as an outstanding programme of revision sessions in small groups for each of the examinations over the year.

Please let committee members know about topics you would like to see discussed at future business meetings, or about anything that you think we should do differently.
