Looking Through Employee Benefits

The issue of transparency within employee benefits and pensions is a topic of regular scrutiny. The state of data, level of adviser and investment fees as well as communications are all areas where transparency can cause issues. Our 2012/13 roadshow will explore these issues, provide a platform to discuss them with others facing similar challenges, and set out ways in which you can make your employee benefits appear clearer.
