“Investing in Challenging Times”

This conference will consider the investment issues currently facing pension schemes. While many assets have shown strong returns in recent times trustees are coming under pressure to take on less risk. How can this be balanced with the need to obtain returns in order to keep schemes sustainable and provide decent retirement income for members?

This Conference has been accredited 4 CPD hour by the LIA (LIA Ref: O-0320 & IOB Ref:. 2013-0453) and 4 CPD hours by the IIPM. If you have a query relating to CPD hours please contact the relevant awarding body.
