The World Pension Summit, 2-4 November 2022

We’re looking forward to the P&I World Pension Summit taking place in The Hague, Netherlands between 2-4 November. Anish Rav, our Director of Retirement, will be joining an expert panel discussing the changing landscape of retirement income around the world.

As Defined Contribution (DC) becomes the most common form of pension provision globally, we will look at why the lead-up to taking benefits and beyond is arguably more important than accumulation, and the role that technology has to play.

Anish Rav commented:

"Too often the pension industry has focused on the accumulation phase at the expense of those at the other end of the journey. The decisions that an individual makes from the point of taking benefits onwards will have a profound impact on their standard of living in retirement, as well as on their dependents. Not only that, the vast array of retirement options now available mean that the need for tools, modellers and guidance, along with efficient systems to take benefits, is greater than ever."

Anish continues:

"Yet the support provided here has too often been manual, disjointed or non-existent. Where support is given, it has often been poorly-designed, not taking into account the specific needs of savers in retirement nor the wider context of other wealth, health and well-being. Advances in technology mean that now is the time to change this and create solutions tailored for this phase of the retirement journey."

Keystone by Smart’s global platform specifically meets these challenges from both the member and provider's perspective.

If you’re attending the P&I World Pension Summit and want to find out more, come along to the session for what promises to be a fascinating debate. Anish and the Smart Team will be there on all three days, so feel free to reach out for an informal chat or using the link below.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
