Topic: Building Back Better - Opportunities (and Risks) in Bonds and Credit Today

Date: 27 May 2021

Venue: Virtual Forum Seminar


What role should pension funds’ credit investments play in shaping the country’s future economic recovery and help ‘build back better’? Many pension schemes already have exposures to credit both public and private and what returns are they likely to expect going forward? Where do you find the best opportunities from the different spectrum of credit available in corporate bond, direct lending and areas such as infrastructure and real estate debt and what risk do you run?  With a potential bubble in credit markets, are we likely to see a credit crunch anytime soon and if so how should schemes prepare?
