November 25, 2020 


Delegate Fee:

Free to Trustees and Pension Executives


The Covid-19 crisis is causing huge economic and financial market disruption globally and negative interest rates appear to be here to stay, but just what does this mean for strategic asset allocation? How should pension fund’s incorporate risk management surrounding a world of negative interest rates into their long term funding targets, now required by TPR.


  • What are the short, medium and long-term outlooks for interest rates and inflation?

  • What are the key challenges for setting a long-term funding target and strategic asset allocation policy today, given the low interest rates and the very real prospect of interest rates staying low for longer?

  • How should pension funds consider setting strategic and tactical asset allocation?

  • Which asset classes should schemes consider investing in today?

  • How do you decide on an appropriate long-term objective?

  • What are some of the practical considerations when implementing an investment strategy that is aligned to a long term funding target?

  • How dynamic should the strategy be?
