Topic: Virtual Forum Seminar: Valuing Illiquid Assets – Challenges, Reliability & Impact on Pension Fund Portfolios

Date: 25 June 2020

Venue: Virtual Forum Seminar

Details:

At this Virtual Forum Seminar, we explored the challenges of investing in Illiquid Assets, in particular around valuations and pricing. With no market price observed for illiquid assets, value must be determined on the basis of valuation models (mark-to-model). Furthermore, the valuations of investment vehicles are available only with a time delay, generally one quarter thus complicating the understanding of portfolios. In a world today where there is great uncertainty on the valuations of underlying portfolios, how can pension funds really evaluate their fund/portfolios, what are they worth today and more importantly the risk adjusted returns they can be expected to get in the long term?
