Purpose

This wide-ranging event will enable pension funds to review a range of investment and asset allocation strategies. We seek to include approaches suitable for DB and/or DC pension funds that could help them to provide scheme specific goals such as targeted returns, income and diversification. We also aim to include consideration of global and local regulatory and economic impacts on investments as well as practical matters such as ESG, cashflow, performance, cost, risk management, default and lifestyle strategies, where relevant.

Liquid Multi-Asset Credit: Capturing income and capital gain opportunities as we invest in a post-pandemic world

  • Following global government responses to Covid-19, credit markets continue to face headwinds.

  • Investors searching for income face a stark choice between low yielding equities and investment grade bonds, which carry little forward-looking income and high interest rate sensitivity.

  • We believe liquid multi-asset credit offers a third way and can deliver high income and capture relative value opportunities, with sustainable outcomes for investors, while mitigating loss risk from defaults through fundamental analysis.

Times have changed in fixed income, should your approach?

The investing landscape has changed in fixed income. Central bank and investor actions have distorted the playing field; downside risks have increased and mis-pricings are commonplace. Jon will talk about the ‘very long in the tooth’ credit cycle, the outlook for central bank tapering, and why Modern Monetary Theory could be the last hope for policymakers.

The conference is by invitation only for pension funds and other institutional investors and we welcome new attendees from these investors. Therefore if you are not already receiving an invitation please contact us. A limited number of Complimentary invitations are available to genuine pension fund representatives (executives and trustees) and other approved institutional investors. However, to ensure we have room for as many funds as possible, we have to limit free places to 3 attendees per approved organisation thereafter a reduced rate fee is payable per delegate. Furthermore, SPS always reserves the right of admission (free or paid) and our decision is final.
