Let the robots set you free – PASA & NextGen hybrid event – 27th October 2022, 5pm

Join us in person at Legal & General’s London offices, or online as our panel of experts discuss how technology is transforming pensions administration and what’s coming next!

Technology is already transforming pension administration – and there’s so much further we could go. So what’s coming over the horizon? How can we harness it to handle the tasks that needn’t take up our time? We’re looking ahead to the truly personalised member experience that will come with AI, analytics, robotic processing, voice recognition and more. Then admin providers can finally spread their wings and focus on adding real value for members.

Our expert panel will discuss the opportunities and the power of the futuristic solutions that will soon be at your fingertips. Within the pensions industry, who’s getting there first and using tech to deliver excellence? And what can we learn from outside pensions?
