About the conference

It is clear that investment cost, value for money and transparency are becoming increasingly important to pension funds and need to be carefully managed. Is fiduciary management the only answer or can DGFs, balanced growth funds or other strategies also help? This conference aims to examine the issues and proposed solutions to help pension funds assess which strategies might help them to achieve better governance and higher returns without increasing risk or net costs.
