Are Pension Funds Sleepwalking

up the Risk Curve


November 27, 2019 

Cass Business School

Delegate Fee:

Free to Trustees and Pension Executives


With the long decline in interest rates and yields across many asset classes and the need for pension funds to generate robust returns, are schemes being blinded by headline potential return offered on some asset classes and not objectively evaluating the risks? In short, are they actually sleepwalking up the risk curve!


Our speakers will aim to consider:

  • How should pension funds consider risk management more holistically?

  • Where should schemes invest today for the best risk adjusted return? 

  • How have fixed income and credit markets changed in recent times?

  • Should strategic and tactical asset allocation policy be changed?

  • With many now considering holding bonds for capital gains and equities for income, just what is the new risk/return relationship between asset classes and how can pension funds ensure they understand this?

  • Should schemes be investing using a risk allocation rather than the traditional asset allocation approach?
