EPFIF is the leading pension fund investment forum in Europe and Southern Africa and comprises eleven Divisions. The first Division started in the UK in 1994 and the most recent additions are The Irish Pension Fund Investment Forum and The Private Markets Investors Forum.
Each Division brings together leading pension fund representatives, other institutional investors, their advisors, and other service providers on a regular basis to meet and hold lively informed discussions on current investment issues and related topics.
The key to its success continues to be:
- Independence – EPFIF is an independent organisation, owned by its founders, and has no association with commercial organisations providing products, consulting or media services for the pensions industry;
- The quality and diversity of its membership – pension fund members of EPFIF account for assets totalling over €2,000 billion;
- Each Division has its own Advisory Committee – committee members are drawn from the pension fund membership to ensure topics chosen for discussion are relevant and helpful;
- Balanced discussions with different points of view – informed, lively and thought provoking discussions arise as a result of mixing together the best speakers from all sides of the pensions industry; and
- Prestigious venues – all meetings are held in environments conducive to stimulating lively discussion and informal networking.
This website is designed to provide an overview of activities for potential new members and a resource for existing members who should login for full access to details of future meetings, past presentations, list of pension fund members, advisory committees and members from pension services suppliers. There are facilities for members to raise questions to be addressed at future meetings and to continue discussions on-line after meetings with other members.
Members should log-in for full access to the pages for the Forums to which they belong.
