In an environment of increasing pension fund deficits coupled with poor expected returns from traditional assets, pension funds have begun to look increasingly hard at alternative asset classes. Although the appetite for commodities amongst pension funds is clearly there and building, a number of hurdles stand in the way of investment mandates. The Commodity Investment Summit will provide a platform for asset managers, investment banks and brokers, and pension funds to address the core knowledge gaps about commodity investing.
