AII Public Funds Roundtable

2018 Agenda

Hacking the Public Pension Portfolio

Let’s rip apart and re-examine the paradigms within which public pension plans have operated for the past ten years.

Meeting return expectations in the current market cycle will take more than strong diversification — including, but not limited to, an investment team that’s light-years ahead of the curve. So what can you do to find the diamonds in the rough, manage all things risk, and hack both governance and human capital?

The 2018 Roundtable for Public Funds will address these shifting trends in depth, and aim to arm public chief investment officers and their teams with the crucial knowledge needed to succeed going forward.

Join us to explore, examine — and hack — the public pension plan.

2018 Preliminary Agenda

2018 Featured Speaker

Emmanuel Roman, the Man Who’s Making PIMCO Exciting Again

In November, PIMCO CEO Emmanuel Roman received the Institutional Investor cover treatment with a story titled “The Man Who’s Trying to Make PIMCO Boring Again.”

Now he’s getting the Alternative Investor Institute treatment with a fireside chat to discuss what the future holds for one of asset management’s most storied firms and the markets in which it operates. Hint: It’s not boring in the slightest.
