Group hopes to repeat success of last year's events, attended by 3,300
Scottish Equitable is to embark on a series of 14 pensions roadshows aimed at intermediaries.
The roadshows are to be presented by Stewart Ritchie, pensions development director at the group.
They are designed to provide advisers with technical and legislative information, as well as the chance to discuss pension issues and opportunities.
Beginning on Wednesday 1 May in Aberdeen, the roadshows will go on to visit Glasgow, Norwich, London, Guildford and Kingston, Croydon, Chelmsford, Harrow, Leicester, Nottingham, Shef-field, Bristol, Birmingham and Leeds. Topics to be covered are the changing face of pensions, investment and the Sandler Review, the great annuity debate, polarisation and with profits, the Myners review and stakeholder.
Margaret Craig, pensions development manager at Scottish Equitable, will help Ritchie present the roadshows as will investment sales manager Hamish Wood.
The Scottish Equitable pension roadshows held in 2001 drew a total attendance of 3,300 advisers.
Ritchie said: 'With 2002 shaping up to be the year of reviews, we are looking forward more than ever to taking the latest pension developments and opportunities to advisers up and down the country.
'Pensions are renowned for being an ever changing area but with Pickering, Sandler and the Inland Revenue all currently conducting reviews, the significance of the changes currently under discussion should not be underestimated.'
The roadshows are free to intermediaries and last approximately two and a quarter hours. They are designed for accreditation with CPD points for the PMI.
For further details of the roadshow dates and venues advisers should contact their local Scottish Equitable branch or call 0500 500170.
