Protecting the scheme on a risk transfer

Scheme Sessions Vol2.2022


Following on from Vol.1, our next series of live webinars are designed to help trustees understand how they can protect their members and themselves in the following situations: (i) when facing a corporate take-over; (ii) dealing with a distressed employer; and (iii) from the risk of liabilities arising after a pension scheme has been bought out.

The three sessions, which will be held in mid/late September, will each involve a discussion between Gowling WLG pensions experts and guest speakers who have experience in dealing with the particular issue in question.

In our third session, we will be looking at the steps trustees and employers can consider in order to protect themselves from liabilities arising after a pension scheme has been bought out so that trustees can wind up the scheme in the knowledge that all benefits have been secured, and employers are protected from legacy claims relating to the pension scheme. Elizabeth Gane will be chairing the discussion, joined by Christopher Stiles and a guest speaker from the insurance industry.


  • Elizabeth Gane, Head of Pensions at Gowling WLG
  • Christopher Stiles, Pensions Partner at Gowling WLG,
  • Guest speaker TBC.
