Join us for the Pensions Forum 2023

Date: October 25, 2023
10:30 AM – 5 PM
Location: The Ritz Carlton Montreal, 1228 Sherbrooke St. West, Montreal QC H3G 1H6

More people retiring than entering the workforce. Instability and volatility at levels not seen in years and described by many as the “new normal”. As part of a public pension fund, you are aware of the challenges posed both by the market and - more importantly - your constituents. How will you address these challenges? How can your investment management infrastructure facilitate- rather than hinder- continued growth and fulfilment of client expectations?

Join us for a half-day discussion of the most pertinent topics for North American public pension funds with SimCorp leaders, industry experts, and your peers. Network with other leading pension funds to discuss the total portfolio approach to asset allocation and how it affects liquidity management, as well as impending regulatory changes including T+1 and ESG investing.
