Managing risks and seeking opportunities for pension funds

“History doesn’t repeat but it most certainly rhymes,” Mark Twain

When markets turn causing extreme levels of volatility pension funds can be left wondering what the future holds. In these uncertain times we should remember the 2008 global financial crisis and the lessons learned by pension schemes and fiduciary managers. 
Join us for a discussion of the steps we took to support and manage portfolios post 2008 financial crisis. We will 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.

The video recording will be available in the webinar archive on the afternoon of 1 July 2020.
