Guest Speaker: Baroness Ros Altmann CBE

We are excited to announce that Baroness Ros Altmann CBE will be our Guest Speaker this year. Baroness Altmann is one of the UK’s leading pensions experts, with over 35 years’ experience in all aspects of pensions, from state pension policy to investment management of pensions funds.

She has worked as an independent consultant for many years, advising governments, the pensions industry and pension funds on policy and investment strategy. Her policy advisory work specialises in pensions and investment-related issues, and her work has often focused on the consumer perspective, focusing on helping pensioners or older citizens enjoy better later life income.

She was a consultant to the UK Treasury on the Myners Review of Institutional Investment and has worked on pensions policy issues with the Number 10 Policy Unit. Ros successfully spearheaded a campaign, lasting over 5 years, to force the UK Government to compensate 150,000 workers who lost their final salary company pensions after being falsely assured by the Government that their pensions were completely safe.

Baroness Ros Altmann CBE was appointed to the House of Lords and became Minister of State for Pensions in the UK Government following the May 2015 General Election until July 2016.
