SPS Virtual:
Property, Infrastructure & Real Asset Investment Strategies for Pension Funds

October 8, 2020


This virtual conference aims to take a broad look at the investment opportunities available to pension funds in the property, infrastructure and other real asset sectors whether traditional, innovative or alternative approaches. We will review recent performance and prospects and consider how each approach can be used to best achieve pension funds’ specific risk and return objectives. We will also examine a range of practical issues such as incorporating ESG factors, liquidity constraints, management of interest rate, inflation and other risks, cash flow management, transparency requirements and fees and other costs.

The conference is by invitation only for pension funds and other institutional investors and we welcome new attendees from these groups. Therefore 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 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.
