SPS Virtual:
Fiduciary Management & Investment Governance for Pension Funds

August 25, 2020


This interactive virtual meeting will aim to focus on investment governance, fiduciary management, ESG requirements, custody, transparency and cost management. We will assess various strategies and approaches such as the place of superfunds and ways to improve governance without increasing risk or net costs.  We will also take a look at practical issues such as selecting, implementing and monitoring fiduciary managers and custodians, regulatory impacts and seek to determine what other issues pension funds should consider.


This will be a virtual conference with approximate timings of:




Session One: Overview; monitoring, and pension fund case study

Oversight or Overlooked?

  • Do you really know if your fiduciary manager is doing a good job?

  • Why and how should trustees be monitoring their fiduciary manager?

  • Is your manager actually doing what you’ve been told it’s doing?

  • How can you get the best from your manager going forwards?

  • The benefits of independent oversight.

Session Two: ESG; Regulatory Update and Pension Fund Case Study

ESG – The Here and Now… What Should you Expect from your Fiduciary Manager?

  • There are many practical/regulatory issues facing trustees.

  • How can your fiduciary manager help you with this burden?

  • ESG in FM is much more than manager ratings.

  • How should your fiduciary manager be implementing your beliefs?

  • What questions should trustees be asking and what will this mean for trustees?
