As the threat of inflation grows in likelihood, central banks and government figures are thinking carefully about how to respond through fiscal and monetary policy. Pension plans, seeking both protection from devaluation of holdings and the potential to gain exposure to the upside, are rigorously reviewing their fixed income portfolio and looking at the landscape of credit, bond and debt investment opportunities they can enter.

The second annual Institutional Fixed Income Summit for Chief Investment Officers, Heads of Asset Allocation and Investment Strategy, Fixed Income investment specialists, Pension Directors and Trustees at UK and European based asset owner groups.

Through the engaging content format, including our unique Talking Table workshop discussions, senior asset allocators outline and discuss the issues driving their thinking about how and where to allocate their assets within fixed income markets and sectors.

Only representatives of insurers and regulatory bodies are invited or can apply to attend this exclusive event. Get in touch with us using your corporate email address to reserve your seat Or call us on +44 (0) 207 688 8511.

* Talking Tables workshop format and subjects

Our Talking Tables workshops form a unique part of our summits and give asset owner group representatives the opportunity to engage with one another on subjects they’ve stated to be issues they’re most keen to engage on. Sponsors may host a Talking Table workshop subject over the day.

Four workshop topics from those listed below will be covered during the summit.

Should a sponsor wish to put forward a subject for consideration that is not listed below, then we are open to additional topics. However, only subjects that we believe asset owner group professionals will actively participate in will be seriously considered and accepted.

For more information on the Talking Tables workshops, please contact Noel Hillmann –

  • Expanding your private debt portfolio
  • Breaking into emerging market private debt
  • Successfully implementing liability adjusted and driven investment portfolios
  • ESG strategies for bond portfolios
  • Factor investing in the bond space
  • Multi-asset and diversification – the role of asset backed securities in a multi-credit portfolio
  • The return of active investment strategies
  • Using ETFs in your bond investment strategy
  • Direct lending: still alive and kicking
  • Using technology and data to manage your fixed income portfolio
