In a low yield environment, what’s the alternative?

Recorded: 14 December 2016

  • Overview
    • A decade ago, most UK DB pension schemes invested almost all of their assets in equities and bonds. Fast-forward to today and we find that alternatives have entered the mainstream, now representing around 20% of the average scheme’s total portfolio.

      This webinar will focus on the role that alternatives can play in pension scheme portfolios in today’s low yield environment.

      In particular, this session will focus on opportunities to generate meaningful returns in private debt and infrastructure, where demand-supply dynamics create fertile ground for investors that have some tolerance for illiquidity.

  • Why attend
    • Find out why alternatives are an increasingly important part of pension scheme strategy.

  • Who should attend
    • DB Pension Trustees, Pension Managers, CFOs, Finance Directors

  • Speakers
    • Alan Baker – UK DB Risk Leader
      Garvan McCarthy – Portfolio Manager, Investments
      Phil Edwards - European Director of Strategic Research
