Date: 1 February 2018

Venue: Ulriksdals Wärdshus, Stockholm - Click here to view map

Details: At this Seminar we considered how your asset allocation will need to be reviewed to meet the changing investment and regulatory environment. Issues we considered included: Quantitative Easing now moving to Quantitative Tightening, implementation of Solvency II and MIFID II, as well as considering the potential impact of the many geopolitical risks from Trump to Putin. Just how do you set the optimal asset allocation and build robust long term portfolios that meet these and the other challenges that lie ahead?

Topic: Strategic Asset Allocation for 2018 and Beyond - What Returns Should Pension Funds Target?

Date: 9 November 2017

Venue: Hellerup Park Hotel, Copenhagen, Denmark - Click here to view map

Details: In this increasingly complex and inter-dependent world, clear strategic foresight is probably the rarest of assets. What should pension funds do to more efficiently manage their asset allocation and where should pension funds be looking for the best strategic investment opportunities in stocks, bonds and other asset classes. Given the low return environment and overvaluations across many asset classes, how should schemes set strategic asset allocation policy going forward? Our speakers considered the key issues providing practical insights on what pension funds can do to manage key risks but also opportunities to generate returns.
