III Public Funds Roundtable

Apr 30th - May 1st 2020
The Beverly Hilton
Los Angeles

Your life is consumed by noise.

Jim Cramer on CNBC franticly gesticulating about the latest 2% “correction”. 

A board member asking exhausting question about the latest non-event in trade negotiations.

A participant wanting to know, ex post, why you invested in that strategy that underperformed over a three-month timeframe.

And yes, even Institutional Investor occasionally stretching for its seventh published story of the day.

This Public Funds Roundtable is about everything else. It’s about the indispensable, not the disposable, of being a public pension investing leader in 2020.

It’s about the essential.
