Steve Bee is set to highlight what he sees as the key issues affecting the pensions market at Ascentric's first series of adviser conferences.
Head of pensions strategy at Scottish Life, Bee is well known for giving lively and entertaining presentations, and for his vocal opposition to Personal Accounts and means tested auto-enrolment.
He says: "Financial advisers who understand the nature of these important pension reforms and the practical implications they hold for all UK employers will themselves be key to the development of our new pension system in this country from 2012."
The wrap provider's conferences will take place in London, Bristol and Leeds in November for both Ascentric users and non-users.
Richard Goodall, sales director at Ascentric, says the conference are an opportunity for IFAs to gain first hand experience from experts about the issues that are shaping the market today.
Each conference will debate asset allocation with fund managers Vanguard, Pictet and Evercore Pan Asset, supporting passive, active and discretionary fund management respectively.
Commenting on the technical aspects of the market will be HSBC, Tony Wickenden from Techlink, and Société Générale.
Bee will close the conference.
