Defined Benefit Investment Forum
December 3, 2020
Expect the unexpected
Every December, institutional investors gather to reflect on the past year and share outlooks for the one ahead. As 2020 proved, it’s hard to predict the future and long-term investors must be positioned for many potential economic environments. How can investors be prepared for the scenarios that may unfold in 2021? How can pension plan sponsors brace themselves for not only economic shocks, but also other potential shocks, including those related to climate change or political unrest? The Defined Benefit Investment Forum will cover relevant topics for plan sponsors who want to stay on the leading edge of evolving trends. This year’s event will also feature a special ceremony to announce the winners of the 2020 Pension Leadership Awards.

About the Pension Leadership Awards
Pension investments are a key component of ensuring secure benefits for plan members upon their retirement. To celebrate the plan sponsors and pension investors who work hard to ensure strong investment outcomes, the first-ever Pension Leadership Awards will recognize winners across several categories: chief investment officer of the year; defined contribution investment innovation; investment governance; risk management; and sustainable investing. We will also announce the money manager of the year and the fastest growing money managers over several categories. You can view the full list of finalists here.
