4th Annual Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium

15th May - 16th May 2019

The Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium will bring together senior heads of fixed income from across the European institutional asset owner community. The symposium will discuss the rapid evolution of products and strategies available across the credit and broader fixed income universe, and comes as a direct result of requests from the asset owner community.

Issues under discussion will include, where should alternative fixed income products sit within a broader portfolio? Are asset owners being adequately compensated for illiquidity? Do asset owners fully understand some of the new products on offer, or are we headed for a repeat of 2008?

Nearly every institution is looking at ways of doing more with fixed income, typically by re-allocating to new strategies and managers. The Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium will examine this trend among European pension funds, endowments and foundations as well as selected insurance funds. Are some investors relying less on indexes, core strategies, and other longer-duration bond positions and instead using funds to increase exposure to other parts of the fixed income market that better hedge a potential rising interest rate environment?


The agenda is curated by an expert Advisory Board of investors who help select the most relevant topics to be discussed at the Symposium. This year’s topics include:

  • Direct Lending
  • Structured Products
  • Asset Backed Securities 
  • Emerging Markets 
  • Interest Rate Cycle
  • Systematic Strategies 
  • Bank Loans
  • ESG
  • Distressed Debt
  • Dynamic, Multi Sector Strategies

The full programme is available upon request
