What is XPSArena?
XPSArena has five unique knowledge hubs – the Trustee Zone, the Employer Zone, the CPD Zone, XPS Market Pulse, and Pension Schemes Act – each specially curated to help you develop your understanding of key topics including emerging regulations, funding updates, and more.
Protecting scheme members is the key goal for Trustees, but we know the challenges that this can pose. From financial stresses and uncertainties caused by market instability, to the Pension Schemes Act 2021, the Trustee Zone sets out what you need to know to make safe, informed decisions about your funding strategies.
It’s essential for employers to stay on top of regulatory requirements and make quick and correct actions to protect them and their Scheme. Our Employer Zone includes easy-to-understand and bite-sized insights, with speed briefs and checklists that help you keep track of your responsibilities.
XPSArena also helps pension professionals – including investors, advisers and actuaries – to meet their CPD requirements with short training sessions, learning modules, and on-demand webcasts. You’ll receive a certificate from each webcast to log your required hours.
A good understanding of other pension schemes is essential to understanding your own. XPS Market Pulse is a key resource to observing daily funding updates and emerging trends so you can benchmark your strategy against popular market practice.
With The Pensions Regulator given extra powers to protect members and monitor risk, it’s important to stay on top of any changes coming out of the Pension Schemes Act 2021. Our dedicated zone explains any new rules with expert insights to keep you up to date.
