5th Annual Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium

8th Dec 2020
Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky
Amsterdam, the Netherlands


The 5th Annual Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium previously scheduled for 21 April 2020 has been rescheduled to 8 December 2020.


The Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium will bring together senior heads of fixed income from across the European institutional asset owner community. The symposium will discuss the rapid evolution of products and strategies available across the credit and broader fixed income universe, and comes as a direct result of requests from the asset owner community.

Issues under discussion will include, where should alternative fixed income products sit within a broader portfolio? Are asset owners being adequately compensated for illiquidity? Do asset owners fully understand some of the new products on offer, or are we headed for a repeat of 2008?

Nearly every institution is looking at ways of doing more with fixed income, typically by re-allocating to new strategies and managers. The Redefining Fixed Income and Credit Symposium will examine this trend among European pension funds, endowments and foundations as well as selected insurance funds. Are some investors relying less on indexes, core strategies, and other longer-duration bond positions and instead using funds to increase exposure to other parts of the fixed income market that better hedge a potential rising interest rate environment?
