mallowstreet University Digital Investment Focus: Investment Considerations in a COVID-19 Environment - what to look out for and what questions to ask
The Digital Investment Focus is designed to equip the trustees of defined benefit pension schemes to make world-class, informed decisions about the pension funds they sit on in a time of extreme uncertainty, stress and volatility. We will hear from two market experts who will share their experience from the past 8 weeks, answer questions live, and provide you with key insights to take away and apply to your pension fund.
Over the course of the morning, delegates will break into small groups and participate in interactive presentations. This morning educational event is accredited by the Pensions Management Institute and is open to pension funds and their advisers.
The Investment Focus will take place online via a ‘Zoom’ meeting (a widely used webcast meeting provider). We will provide further information, including an access link and password, to all attendees in advance of the Focus.
