Dawn of a new day : Pension perspectives emerging in a post-Covid world

Online Seminar hosted by CPBI Ontario
As a challenging year draws to a close, we can all recognize that 2020 has been the craziest year on record, and we are all looking to bring a healthy amount of optimism into 2021. In line with this theme, we are also seeking a great amount of market change and uncertainty, with many pension and asset owners taking a pause and revaluating market outlooks and asset allocation decision making as we look forward.

In this panel discussion, we will hear insights from senior industry leaders in the pension industry as they share their perspectives as we close our 2020 and look forward to 2021 and the dawn of a new day. In this session, we will hear insights from the pension perspective where future opportunities, areas of risk, and some of the key attendee outcomes will include:


  • Investment perspectives on various asset classes and outlooks across the asset allocation spectrum.
  • Thoughtful insights from senior pension industry professionals.
  • Economic Outlook and market expectations for 2021.
  • Q&A segment to hear perspectives from panelists.
