mallowstreet University Dinner: Navigating the Road to Buyout - PIC

As pension funds map out their ‘end game’, many are working out how to fully transfer their liabilities to an insurer. We will specifically cover:

• How to structure a portfolio – what types of assets are attractive to an insurer

• What makes an insurer take one process more seriously than another?

• Are there times where you can secure better pricing than others?

• Should you use new advisers to help run your process?

This dinner is available exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisors and is eligible for CPD accreditation.
