AII Public Funds Roundtable

Apr 28th - Apr 29th 2020
The Beverly Hilton
Los Angeles
Politics Are a Disaster. Markets Are Shaky. The Future is Uncertain. In Short: It’s Never Been a Better Time to Be a Public Pension CIO.

The current environment is one of high anxiety – socially and in many cases economically. The fabric of geopolitical unity is in tatters, equity markets act of their own volition, credit quality is of increased concern, emerging markets continue to be challenged, and the world prepares for slowed growth. All the while, U.S. public plans continue to fight an uphill battle against their funded statuses.

However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for cautious optimism in public pension investing.

Governance can be altered. Allocators can leverage relationships for mutual benefit. New paradigms of investment opportunity are emerging. As market cycles shift, there is an increased opportunity along with increased risk.

In response, the 2019 Public Funds Roundtable will address the means through which you can hack your portfolio, expose ascending and descending trends, and challenge conventional wisdom to gain an edge.
