The European Pensions Symposium and the European Investment Roundtable meetings will take place together this year to form one of the first and largest pan-European gatherings of leading investment officials since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. These well-established meetings have historically convened up to 100 European pension and insurance fund executives for a three-day programme of interactive workshops, panel sessions, guest speakers and social activities.
The 2021 meeting will offer a unique, off-the-record setting for attendees to share innovative ideas and best practice among European institutional asset owners and managers who ultimately set out to answer the question: What is the latest thinking on asset allocation, investment opportunities and risk management?
This is an invitation-only event and all discussions are held under Chatham House Rule to enable a candid exchange of opinions. The event is free of charge for qualified investors.

The last two occasions when the European institutional asset owner community met in person, at the European Pensions Symposium in February 2020 and the European Investment Roundtable in September of 2019, there were deep concerns about indebted nations and debate as to where to find yield in a low rate environment. These questions were not new. There were also debates about what could spark the next crisis.
March 2020 answered the question on the crisis.
Now institutional asset owners face a new set of questions around how they transition their strategies to a post –Covid future. Is the transition to higher inflation now inevitable? In the United States the fiscal floodgates have been opened and a new global tax regimes look possible – what will this mean for long term portfolios?
Most importantly, ESG has logged itself ever more firmly into asset owner considerations. How will they fund and manage the risks of the transition to a greener future?
