KPMG formed a strategic alliance with the Association of British Insurers (ABI) around the issue of wealth and long-term savings. The alliance launched with KPMG’s headline sponsorship of the ABI’s Retirement Conference in February 2015.
The alliance sees the two organisations work together on a range of different events and activities throughout next year.
The Retirement Conference took place on 25 February at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London. The event featured two speakers from KPMG as well as the Rt Hon Steve Webb MP, Minister of State for Pensions. The all-day conference provided an opportunity for senior industry figures to look beyond the implementation of the reforms in April and debate the future of the market and the regulatory and political environment that will shape it.
KPMG’s Insurance sector has highlighted wealth and long term savings as one of its key strategic areas and the company will be at the forefront of the debate around constructing a vision for the market in the UK.
Phil Smart, KPMG UK’s Head of Insurance, said: “I’m delighted to be teaming up with the ABI on such an incredibly important issue. This is a crucial time for the long-term savings and pensions industry and together I believe we can help shape the conversation and work to address the challenges and opportunities ahead for insurers and consumers alike.”
