Chartered Accountants Ireland is hosting a discussion evening on private pensions in Ireland and the government’s current plans to introduce automatic enrolment in Ireland in 2022. Irish Independent’s Charlie Weston will give his views on the proposals, while Gary Briggs, Managing Director of Vintage Corporate will tell us how employers might go about implementing auto-enrolment in the workplace. Gillian Ryan, Strategic Business Manager with Standard Life will speak about the value of including a pension in your financial planning.
