This paper considers the role an enhanced allocation to real assets can play in portfolios during various stages of the pension life cycle.
In the wake of the Global Financial Crisis, all eyes are on dynamic, responsive funding strategies that can deliver long-term goals in a risk-aware way.
Are your private credit allocations positioned for uncertainty?
Our summer 2019 edition looks at UK pension buy and maintain strategies, the globalisation of real estate holdings and the importance of timing when investing in a volatile, late cycle environment.
Caught our eye: UK pension buy and maintain strategies could bring demand pressure to sterling corporate bonds
In an already tightly held market for sterling corporate bonds, even modest moves by UK pension funds to adopt buy and maintain strategies could create stiff competition for these assets.
UK pension plans concerned about how to invest in a volatile, late cycle environment may want to consider two practices: continue effective rebalancing and don���t postpone further duration hedging in anticipation of rising rates.
Pension funds don���t face the many constraints that make buy and maintain strategies so well-suited to insurers, and can make use of these freedoms when designing portfolios to meet the liability-aware investment needs of pension funds.
We examine how negative cash flow impacts funding, risk and return for pension plans and provide insight on how plans are likely to adapt their investment strategies in response, taking into account current capital market conditions and our 2018
