Investment Conference 2017

Institutional investors are facing one of the most challenging periods they have ever had to deal with. Unprecedented geopolitical upheaval - Brexit and the shock US election result, tumultuous Euro elections plus a snap election at home - coupled with volatile markets and historic lows for interest rates have all exacerbated the on-going issues of pension scheme deficits and rising costs. Many schemes are increasingly adopting a pro-active approach to balance funding risk with a strategic approach to asset allocation in the search for better returns.

Now in its 10th year, Professional Pensions Investment Conference connects senior decision makers from public and private pension schemes with industry leaders, informing and engaging them to explore the different approaches schemes can take to cut deficits and improve member outcomes.

Sponsoring firms will present investment options to increase funding levels and revamp portfolios, explain strategies and latest thinking around risk reduction, give essential updates on industry regulation, and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you for a day of insight, learning, networking and best practice!

Topics on this year's agenda to include:

  • Fixed Income in an uncertain world
  • Multi-Asset Strategies: revisiting the 60/40 split
  • Diversified Growth Funds in the changing pension environment
  • Illiquids: opportunities for enhanced returns?
  • Cash flow-driven investing: strategies for mature schemes
