WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP FOR?
This workshop entitled Getting to grips with investment strategy - asset allocation is the second of two one hour workshops designed to help trustees navigate the complexities of investing in today's challenging environment. This workshop follows on from the first workshop run on 16 September 2016 and looks at recent trends in asset allocation and the importance of building a scheme-specific asset allocation that reflects an individual scheme's circumstances.
Both workshops are sponsored and delivered by Russell Investments.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Trustees of DB pension schemes and anyone responsible for running a DB scheme.
