Insights into the current challenges and opportunities of the LGPS, collaborating for success in unpredictable times

The LGC Pension Insight Symposium is finally returning to Stratford-upon-Avon for its 2022 edition.

This must-attend event offers a valuable hub for expert practitioners from LGPS pools and funds to safely connect, collaborate and update the asset management community on their investment thinking and plans for the future.

We're delighted to be back at this in person event providing essential content and discussions on all the key talking points in the industry affecting key stakeholders, from the recent valuation, investment challenges & opportunities, to regulatory updates and innovation.

With a high level of debate and a protected ratio of 60% asset managers to 40% LGPS officers, this is the right platform not only to debate effective investment strategies but also to meet and network with key decision makers.

The 2022 programme will feature a range of speakers from the underlying funds and the pools who will offer insight on what their challenges and how they can work more effectively together with the asset managers.
