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.
Allocating to multi-asset credit managers, who seek out alpha opportunities without constraint, can improve risk-adjusted returns for the average DB plan.
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.
The authors discuss sustainable investing, highlighting why there is not trade-off between a focus on sustainability and the maximisation of profit.
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.

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.
