Investment Strategies & Cash Flow Management for Maturing Pension Funds
21 October, 2020 - revised date
This conference aims to help pension funds to review the investment options available for managing the complex challenges faced by their funds as they mature. We will assess the key issues around cash flow management and maturing pension funds and explore a number of approaches designed to resolve these, such as defensive strategies, longevity risk management, cash flow and income management strategies, fiduciary management, superfunds, buy-ins and buy-outs. We will also consider a range of practical issues such as transparency, implementation, liquidity requirements, interest rates, costs and fees.

Maturing with resilience – what has Covid-19 taught us about private credit?
Maturing pension schemes on the whole are looking through the current crisis and maintaining a long-term perspective. Ultimately, the need for pension schemes to match their long-dated liabilities remains unchanged. However, the Covid-19 crisis has shone a light on private credit investments and their ability to deliver high quality and stable cash flows. In the first real test for pension funds and insurers invested in infrastructure debt, how has it fared? And in particular, how has it fared compared to other private credit sectors such as corporate lending and real estate debt?

Investment implications of the revised DB funding code
The Pensions Regulator’s proposals for the revised funding code for defined benefit pension schemes have several implications for investment strategies.
From an investment perspective, the revised code incorporates a greater focus on the long-term objective, greater requirements for the scheme’s investments, and a greater focus on demonstrating compliance and objective risk-taking.
We believe these requirements have several implications for pension schemes’ investment strategies.
Insight’s specialist teams are already applying their expertise in risk management and fixed income solutions to help clients in ways that align with The Pension Regulator’s proposals.
The conference is by invitation only for pension funds and other institutional investors. If you are not already receiving an invitation please contact us. A limited number of Complimentary invitations are usually 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 2 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.
SPS Virtual will be hosted on a dedicated webpage so you won’t need to download any specific software.
