Pensions

Developments in the field of pensions and other old-age provisions are following each other in rapid succession and legislation is continuing to change too. The pensions sector is finding itself faced with a whole range of challenges as a result. We can imagine that you might have questions about how certain matters need to be arranged - whether you are a pension provider or an employer. In addition, there is a high demand for good directors today and ever stricter requirements are being imposed on pension fund directors.
