Managing risks and seeking opportunities

History doesn’t repeat but it most certainly rhymes.

When markets turn causing extreme levels of volatility, we automatically remember the 2008 global financial crisis (GFC) and the many learning opportunities that it provided for pension schemes and fiduciary managers. We will discuss the steps we took to support and manage portfolios post the 2008 GFC, and take a deep dive into what the current situation means for pension funds in the future, and where opportunities may lie.

Please note that this PLSA webinar is only open to PLSA Fund members.

What you’ll learn

  • Spotlight on liability hedging
  • How to manage risk when diversification seems to fail.
  • Looking ahead, where are the opportunities?
  • Can private markets be the golden ticket in a low-yield environment?
