Topic: War Gaming – How Should Pension Funds Plan?

Date: 22 February 2018 from 12:00 to 14:30

Venue: Barber-Surgeons' Hall, London - Click here to view map

Details: With equity and bond markets continuing to rally, is the bull cycle (for either or both asset classes) coming to an end? What can pension funds do to protect themselves should prices retreat and is there anywhere to hide? However, as history seems to suggest, it is extremely difficult to time the end of a bull market, so should pension funds continue to take risks and remain invested for ‘fear’ of missing out on any continuing upside? If so, can these risks be better managed? Are downside protection strategies cost effective today and what really are the opportunity costs of implementing such a strategy in today’s environment? Where are the opportunities to invest today?

Topic: Providing Pension Fund Promises Using Matched Cash Flows or Liability Values

Date: 29 March 2018 from 12:00 to 14:30

Venue: Saddlers' Hall - Click here to view map

Details: At this Seminar we will discuss whether trustees and pension schemes really understand their cash flow needs and how should they deliver the returns and cash they need to fulfil their pensions promise? Our panel of expert speakers will consider the merits of cash flow and liability management, including a strategy on matching cash flows, day to day operational challenges of cash flow management and also how can schemes really forecast their cash flows? Do schemes really need to match 100% of their cash flows?
