Japan Pension Workshop 2019

Oct 23rd 2019
The Tokyo Station Hotel

The Japan Pension Workshop is a special gathering uniquely designed for senior Japanese pension fund representatives. The Workshop will provide a holistic, comprehensive examination of the international investment opportunities available to Japanese pension funds, in light of the current geopolitical and economic environment.

These approaches will vary from: moving up the yield curve by allocating to assets like emerging market debt and high yield bonds; gaining exposure to risk factors instead of traditional asset classes; allocating to illiquid assets like real estate and infrastructure alternatives; and designing more flexible investment mandates.

All discussions at the Workshop are governed by Chatham House Rule. The event is closed to media and by invitation only to senior fund decision-makers. This ensures open and productive discussions with an effective exchange of ideas among peers.


Key investment themes impacting Japanese pension funds in 2019 and beyond

Managing fixed income portfolios amid diverging interest rate policies

Who Should Attend:

Directors, general managers, chief investment officers, heads of asset classes, investment committee members and senior investment staff, managing assets for Japanese pension funds.
