Liquidity conference

About this event

Getting to grips with liquidity 

Liquidity risk has become a popular source of return for yield-hungry investors, but measuring its impact on portfolios is a difficult feat, especially in today’s liquidity-constrained environment. The need, therefore, to better understand the ebbs and flows of liquidity has never been more important than now.

Join us for a complimentary half-day conference focusing on the nature of liquidity in today’s uncertain market and its likely effect on portfolios.

Topics for discussion include:

How should investors measure illiquidity?

  • The reasons behind the lack of liquidity in markets and the issues this poses.
  • How do investors know if they have enough liquidity in their portfolios?
  • What due diligence needs to be undertaken before entering illiquid investments?

Mark Hedges,
chief investment officer, Nationwide Pension Fund
Claire Smith,
associate director, Macquarie Asset Management
Chris Redmond,
global head of credit research, Willis Towers Watson
Mike Weston,
chief executive, Pensions Infrastructure Platform
Nick White,
global director of portfolio construction research, Mercer

Making the most of illiquidity premia

  • Defining the illiquidity premium and how can it be accessed.
  • What asset classes provide an illiquidity premium?
  • The pros and cons of illiquid assets.
  • Capacity: is there enough illiquidity to go round?

Pete Drewienkiewicz,
head of manager research, Redington
Adrian Jones portfolio manager,
infrastructure debt, Allianz Global Investors
Max Mitchell,
senior managing director, head of direct lending, Europe, ICG
Mark Thompson,
chief investment officer, HSBC Bank Pension Trust

Opening up illiquid assets to DC schemes

  • How to get around daily pricing. Is it really necessary?
  • The benefits of illiquidity for DC schemes.
  • Illiquid asset classes suitable for DC and the initiatives being explored.

Chris Hitchen,
chief executive, RPMI
Laura Myers, head of DC investment, LCP
Giles Payne, director, HR Trustees
Ann Swift, director and head of DC investment, KPMG
