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.
Talking about membership, our subscription is due in January and you will now have received your email reminder. Please either use our online payment mechanism (our preferred method) or send a cheque to renew your membership or join the Group. The fee is nominal and subsidises students and social events. It also encourages greater engagement in the community. For student, unwaged and retired members no charge is made, please just confirm your current status to Mark Jenkins.
Cheque: Send your annual subscription of £10.00 to Mark Jenkins at CMS, Cannon Place, 78 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 6AF. Cheques to be made payable to the “PMI London Group”. We hope that you will continue to be involved in the PMI London Group and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.
PMI London business meeting
PMI London Group’s next business meeting on the 26th February is being held jointly with the Association of Pensions Lawyers (APL) and will look at the topical matter of GMP equalisation, after the recent judgement in the Lloyds case.
We are delighted to have a panel of distinguished guests to help us pick through the headlines, understand what schemes will need to do to comply and tackle many of the issues that are yet to be highlighted.
Independently chairing what is sure to be a lively discussion will be Sara Benwell, a freelance financial journalist and editor. Sara is joined by Samantha Brown (Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills), David Brooks (Technical Director, Broadstone) and Michael Ingram (Senior Manager and Actuary, Deloitte).
The event is hosted by Herbert Smith Freehilss LLP (London) and registrations commence at 17.45.
Attendance is free for all PMI London Group members - interested parties can signup here.
All PMI members can keep up-to-date with events in the London Region by following us on our PMI London Linkedin group.

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
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.
