European Pensions Symposium / European Investment Roundtable

Sep 29th - Oct 1st 2021
Marriott Hotel

The European Pensions Symposium and the European Investment Roundtable meetings will take place together this year to form one of the first and largest pan-European gatherings of leading investment officials since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These well-established meetings have historically convened up to 100 European pension and insurance fund executives for a three-day programme of interactive workshops, panel sessions, guest speakers and social activities.

The 2021 meeting will offer a unique, off-the-record setting for attendees to share innovative ideas and best practice among European institutional asset owners and managers who ultimately set out to answer the question: What is the latest thinking on asset allocation, investment opportunities and risk management?

This is an invitation-only event and all discussions are held under Chatham House Rule to enable a candid exchange of opinions. The event is free of charge for qualified investors

Register Your Interest

Participation is strictly limited to qualified executives. Once registered, a member of the Institutional Investor team will be in touch to confirm attendance. Due to capacity restraints, all registrations will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
