At the Forefront: European Pension Funds Exchange Knowledge on Asset Allocation - Interview with: Albena Georgieva and Brittany Ryan, summit producers of the marcus evans - European Pensions and Investments Summit

  1. 1. 16 - 18 May 2011 | Fairmont Le Montreux Palace | Montreux | SwitzerlandAt the Forefront:European Pension Funds Exchange Knowledgeon Asset Allocation Albena Georgieva and Brittany Ryan, summit producers of the marcus evans European Pensions and Investments Summit 2011, highlight the key discussions guided by Europe’s leading pension fund managers.FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEAs debates over the Greek debt crisis and the future of the Eurozone rage on, there is no time like the present for an exchange ofkey financial viewpoints. Pension fund investors shared thoughts on these and other issues at the 11th Annual marcus evansEuropean Pensions and Investments Summit which took place on May 16-18 in Montreux, Switzerland.Describing the recovery as long and painful, Paul Krugman delivered a candid summary of his latest economic insights followed byan extensive Q&A session with the audience. Macroeconomics was also on the agenda with a panel of leading global economistsdissecting the outlook. The panel displayed impressive conviction in their assessment of Europe as a healthy economic region, inspite of fears of contagion in the event of a restructuring of Greek debt prior to 2013. Even though this uncertainty is causingsome to question the survivability of the Eurozone currency, the panel said they would go long on the Euro.Another main point of divide was the state of the Chinese economy and its potential as an inflationary force. While most attendeesat the summit expressed concerns about rising inflation, the panel reminded them that it may be a less painful solution to debtissues. Even keynote speaker and best-selling author Nassim Taleb took advantage of the opportunity to pose questions directly tothe panel. Taleb later offered suggestions for surviving a Black Swan world.One clear message was that pension fund managers cannot escape a new reality of fatter tails, where their risk management skillswill be put to the test repeatedly. Whether they would choose a dynamic risk approach, scheme de-risking or liabilities hedgingtactics, the current state of pension provision systems throughout Europe remains the biggest threat.As the European pensions framework continues to evolve, the European Pensions and Investments Summit 2011 will remain at theforefront. Join us in 2012 for a detailed agenda, infused with many networking opportunities and productive business meetings. www.epi-summit.com
