mallowstreet Digital DC Indaba


Delegates are expected to attend the full event. We do understand that this is a time commitment in diaries. Please do let us know if you need to step away for a call/meeting.

The Digital Defined Contribution Indaba* is a chance for senior figures from the UK’s largest DC pension funds to discuss key asset classes and investment opportunities for 2021 and beyond. You will hear from a selection of keynote speakers and take part in four interactive Investment Masterclass breakout sessions specifically tailored for defined contribution pension funds.

The Indaba is available for CPD accreditation by the Pensions Management Institute and is exclusively for pension funds and their advisers.

*An Indaba (pronounced in-dar-bah) is an important conference held by the izinDuna (principal people) of the Zulu or Xhosa people. The term comes from a Zulu language word meaning "business" or "matter".
