By bringing together pension fund representatives with service providers, the seminars are designed to provide robust and objective discussions. All members may attend the meetings but a key requirement for all non-pension fund members and speakers is that the selling of products or services is not permitted.
There are two categories of membership. One for representatives of Pension Funds and similar Institutional Investors such as charities, foundations or other non-commercial organisations. Members include representatives of Irish Pension Funds as well as other European and multinational companies’ pension funds. The other is open to a limited number of other representatives from the pensions and investment industry.
The Irish meetings are held in suitable locations in Dublin. Additional meetings include an International Seminar in September.
The Forum is advised by an Advisory Committee, comprising only pension fund representatives, who ensure that the topics being discussed are relevant and helpful.
