26th Annual European Pensions Symposium

Feb 7th - Feb 9th 2018
The Westin Palace

The long standing success of this event is based on consultation with, and participation from, senior pension fund investment officials. The programme is driven by an expert Advisory Board of pension funds, insurers and foundations to ensure discussions are most relevant to the issues the pension industry are currently facing.

I really enjoyed the event and the chance to talk to the other funds in the P20 sessions.

— Tony Broccardo, CIO, Barclays, United Kingdom

Plaza de las Cortes, 7

This luxury hotel is located in the heart of Madrid, within the Art Triangle. The hotel is famous for its beautiful stained-glass dome.

The Symposium was very useful and interesting. Always valuable to meet other institutional investors, in particular European investors. I really liked the table seating.
