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.
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.
This quarterly publication from our Pension Solutions and Advisory Group provides UK pension funds with timely updates on market trends, funding levels and the latest industry and product developments.
UK pension funds are moving to globalise their real estate holdings, taking advantage of increased diversification benefits and greater scale of investment opportunities.
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.
As we compiled the 2018 edition of our Long-Term Capital Market Assumptions, the world economy has enjoying its best period of synchronized growth in more than a decade.
With global recessionary risks rising, we provide a framework to help UK pensions prepare for near-term risks that could challenge the fulfillment of their sponsor covenants.
We further discuss how institutional investors can protect their portfolios from late cycle headwinds and rising volatility so that they can be positioned for long-term success.
