Alternative / Innovative Investing for Pension Funds
September 17, 2020
This interactive virtual meeting will seek to help pension funds to review the place of alternative / innovative investment strategies in their portfolios. We will look at a range of leading-edge and alternative strategies, either public or private, seeking to find different ways to address current challenges and to assess their impact on diversifying risks, improving returns and/or funding levels and on meeting specific income requirements. We will also consider practical issues such as impact of technology and AI, liquidity, fees, hedging, transparency and implementation.

Embracing Innovative Investment Strategies
Incorporating innovative and often unfamiliar strategies in portfolios is a highly attractive proposition for pension funds in the current environment. These strategies often require a slightly different approach to incorporating them within strategic investment policy formulation and to implement successfully. We will explore how to navigate some of the most important issues when investing in these strategies.
