London

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.

Forthcoming events

Join us on 6 November for our look at the various options for schemes and their sponsors when preparing for the ‘endgame’. At this important event, hosted by Travers Smith, we will hear from a panel of experts who will explore a range of topics including buy in/out, consolidation, corporate restructuring and insolvency.

Places will be strictly limited so keep an eye out for the full details, which will be displayed on our LinkedIn profile in due course. Invitations will, of course, be sent to all London Group members.

Our commitment to you

Our purpose is to support and promote the aim of the PMI through local activity and to channel information flow between members, Students and the PMI Council and Central Staff.  We will achieve this by:

  • sponsoring a minimum of five business meetings each year with quality speakers on
    a range of pensions and employee benefit subjects
  • offering a minimum of 7.5 hours CPD qualifying activity each year
  • communicating regularly with our members to promote Regional Group activities
  • actively seeking, promoting and participating in local activities to enhance the profession and industry
  • innovative educational support for Student Members
  • providing a social forum for like-minded professionals to meet and have fun

CPD

All Regional Group meetings and events qualify for CPD hours which you can use towards your PMI CPD requirement.  These would come under the 'Events/Seminars/Conferences' category and you can claim a maximum of 7 CPD hours for each based on your assessment of its value to you.
