Investing Intelligently in an Era of Increasing Uncertainty

As counties across Europe announce ever more worrying deficits in state pension funds the emphasis is increasingly on employers to take an evermore-active role in securing the retirement future of their employees. Therefore as volatile market conditions continue to prevail, and new accounting requirements force fund managers to turn to secure but low return investment products, it is imperative that they are fully informed, equipped and prepared to formulate effective strategies to succeed in meeting and even exceeding the funding requirements of their stakeholders.

What effect has the US election had on global politics? Will the stabilisation and reduction of excessively high and arguably artificial oil prices result in the global markets finally begin to enjoy the fruits of their sound fundamentals?

In the new era of persistently low interest rates, low growth, failing stock markets and an increasingly intrusive regulatory environment, EPI 2005 will familiarise delegates with the full range of alternative methods which can be employed to combat the pensions deficit crisis, maximise returns, while ensuring effective and compliant corporate governance.

To meet the specific needs of the European pensions and investment fund industry, EPI 2005 has also recruited fund managers and economists from Europe’s biggest organisations to explain their investment strategies and expectations. Furthermore we welcome to the summit visionary speakers who have direct influence on EU legislation presenting their views on where the EU pensions industry is heading and what action is necessary to avert the looming pensions demographic time bomb.

To tackle the industry’s most critical issues, representatives from Europe’s premier investment and pension funds, policy makers and regulatory bodies meet to discuss their experiences, expectations and views regarding Investment strategies, pensions policy design, ALM, SRI current and possible future developments in international accounting standards, the future of the European pensions, as well as a providing a comprehensive guide to utilising Hedge funds, Derivatives and Alternative investments as part of an coherent, effective, and responsive investment strategy.
