SPS Annual Bonds: Investment & Risk Management Strategies
January 12, 2023
The View at the Royal College of Surgeons, London
This conference is for pension investment teams and trustees both in the public and private sector and is free to attend. As an Annual event, it helps kick off the year for bond investors with topical, high quality investment information. If you haven’t already received an invitation please click “request an invite” below.
As Bonds and LDI hit the limelight with dramatic changes to pension funds’ investment and funding environment, this event will provide a chance to consider fixed income investment strategies once the dust has settled.
Expert speakers from investment managers, consultants, the regulator and pension funds themselves lead the debate. Plus our Q&A sessions hosted by investors encourage audience engagement and allow you to find out more about certain topics or have the chance to ask the questions that concern you. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss issues with your peers and the speakers during the breaks.
