HM Government are urging pension funds and insurers to increase their investment in UK infrastructure and housing. See Match.com? Making the pensions and infrastructure romance work. But what do these asset classes offer pension funds and insurance companies and do the potential rewards really justify the additional governance and risk?
On Thursday 27th June I will be speaking on opportunities in Social Housing alongside a great list of speakers at the Westminster and City event Infrastructure, Social Housing and Property Investment – Should pension funds and insurers get involved?
There are three reasons why you should come to the conference.
1. A great list of speakers from across the pension fund, fund manager and advisor community, including:
a. Edmund Truell, Chairman LONDON PENSIONS FUND AUTHORITY
b. Doug Segars, Head of Infrastructure Finance INFRASTRUCTURE UK, HM TREASURY
c. David Skinner, CIO, Global Real Estate AVIVA INVESTORS
d. Glencora Senior, Senior Portfolio Manager BAE SYSTEMS PENSION FUND
e. Ashley Goldblatt, Head of Real Estate Lending LEGAL & GENERAL
f. Mark Hedges, Chief Investment Officer NATIONWIDE PENSION FUND
2. A great way to understand the latest developments and thinking, with analysis and insight from a myriad of organisations, including: HM Treasury, pension funds, insurers, trustees, fund managers, solicitors and consultants. The conference will:
a. Identify the assets and opportunities of most relevance and suitability to pension funds and insurance companies
b. Explore what the various opportunities offer different investors
c. Provide practical guidance on how, and whether, to transact
d. Debate key issues of interest such as liquidity and exit strategies, mitigating construction risk and UK versus overseas opportunities.
3. A great opportunity to network and meet like minded people from across the pensions and insurance industry interested in investing in Infrastructure
