Pensions in Europe: Creating a sustainable system for the 21st century

This event, in partnership with the CFA Society Italy, will first look at the Future of Finance broadly from a pension perspective and then more specifically at the evolution of pension systems and their ongoing pension reform processes. At the Frankfurt event, the German pension system will be more closely analyzed from this aspect.

  • A look back at where we have come from in the financial system and where we might be going
  • How the world’s leading pension funds and asset owners are adapting
  • Investment governance evolving to match new conditions
  • The changing context for investors globally and the transformational forces at work- low returns, externalities, short-termism
  • What success looks like in asset allocation, manager allocation, culture and collaboration
  • A sustainable financial ecosystem from a more trustworthy and forward thinking investment industry; how this will require significant change
  • Further insights into the European and specifically German pension system, with focus on demographic developments and a review of recent reforms
  • Discussion of where pension reform will lead us in the coming years
