Osaka Global Investment Workshop 2020

Oct 21st 2020
オンライン ワークショップ Virtual Workshop


The Osaka Global Investment Workshop previously scheduled for June 4, 2020 has been rescheduled to October 21, 2020.


The Osaka Global Investment Workshop will bring together senior investment professionals from the most influential pension funds in the Kansai region. In addition, selected insurers, trust banks and other large financial institutions from Japan and overseas will be invited.

The Workshop aims to support investors by giving them the necessary tools to effectively manage risk, identify new investment opportunities and dynamically manage their portfolios in an increasingly turbulent economic, political and investment environment. It will also provide insights into specific international investment strategies and asset classes that are critical to investors’ portfolios, thus allowing fund managers to better support return and funding objectives.

All discussions at the Workshop are governed by Chatham House Rule. The event is closed to media and by invitation only to senior fund decision makers. This ensures open and productive discussions with an effective exchange of ideas among peers.
