Meeting Long-Term Liabilities in an Age of Unpredictability
Peer group discussion and learning for European Institutional Investors
Politics has always mattered to investors, but with policy makers now active buyers across fixed income markets investors are more exposed than ever to the whims of governments. And whether it is the Brexit bombshell or the possibility of a Trump presidency, old certainties and investment anchors no longer hold true. As the European Pensions Symposium reaches its 25th anniversary institutional asset owners are still grappling with the old issues of risk and return, as they seek to honour their liabilities. However, the current economic landscape of long-term low returns, negative interest rates and quantitative easing are modern problems, which this conference seeks to address.
Run over two days in Munich, it allows over 95 leading institutional investors the unique opportunity for peer-to-peer networking in a closed environment (the Chatham House Rule applies).
Almost €2 trillion of pension and insurance assets were represented at EPEN 2015. As an attendee, you are able to share knowledge and ideas with the best representation of European's investors.
