mallowstreet University Dinner: Challenging the Fixed Income Status Quo

Join us for this educational mallowstreet dinner looking at challenging the status quo in the world of Fixed Income.

The evening will be hosted by BNY Mellon, and will bring together industry experts to discuss, debate and enjoy dinner at this exclusive venue.

Mellon’s (a part of BNY Mellon) capability set focuses on delivering competitive solutions to market segments where traditional approaches face challenges,for instance inconsistent alpha or frictional headwinds. In this presentation and discussion Paul Benson will show how certain implementation innovations can markedly reduce transaction costs, a key source of performance drag for credit portfolios, and enhance the portfolio liquidity profile. He will also demonstrate how a rules-based approach to portfolio design and construction utilising a differentiated application can capture structural inefficiencies and deliver cost-effective, competitive outperformance.

This dinner is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision
makers and their advisors.
