Global Macro Trends, Today and Tomorrow
With the global economy showing signs of recovery, investors are starting to ask why and how long this might last.

Private Credit – Overvalued or value creator?
There is a lot of discussion about the current market for private credit. Is now a good time for pension schemes to increase its allocation to private credit or should they watch whilst other investors buy? This talk will consider the current market for private credit, opportunities and challenges for pension schemes to invest.
Climate Change is a Financial Risk: Are you keeping up, or quietly increasing your professional liability?
Policymakers, financial regulators and lawyers are paying increasing attention to climate change, both in the UK and beyond. This stance supports pension funds who are developing their investment beliefs and practice around the issue.
Other finance sector actors are developing their services to both meet this demand, and to stimulate it. The IFoA issued a Risk Alert on climate change last year. This session will look at a range of policy and regulatory initiatives underway, and offer some ways we might choose to develop our thinking about the role of long term investment. It will specifically seek to stimulate a discussion in the Q&A
