Like usual reception starts at 14:30h directly followed by 4 topical & interesting presentations of our sponsors. Each presentation will be 20 minutes and will be hosted by Jolanda de Groot of the leading magazine ‘Financial Investigator’. Like always we will end with drinks and bites to give everyone the opportunity to meet, greet and network.

For our 6th institutional investor event the presenting sponsors are: Lazard Asset Management, Qualitas, Vontobel and Wellington Management.

4th Institutional Investor Event | March 14th 2018 14:30h | Amsterdam

‘Allocating assets in the current expansion phase of the business cycle where all opportunities look expensive.’

On March the 14th we are organizing our 4th ‘Off Ice on Topic’ Institutional Investor Event. This year’s theme will be ‘Allocating assets in the current expansion phase of the business cycle where all opportunities look expensive.’

Now that we definitely left behind the 2007-2009 financial crisis and most economies are showing growth acceleration investment opportunities look expensive. For government bonds, equities, credits and even for most alternatives the general belief is that they have become expensive making asset allocation a difficult job. This is especially true for Dutch pension funds that – for regulatory reasons – are ‘forced’ into € government bonds and swaps and can not take much additional risk. In this restricted environment one has to be smart and creative using new strategies, seek for true alpha and protect the downside.

Like previous events the event will take place at the Amsterdam based Huize Frankendael. This location is outside the crowded citi center and easily accessible by car. Reception starts at 14:30h directly followed by 4 topical & interesting presentations by our sponsors. Each presentation will be 20 minutes and will be hosted by Jolanda de Groot of the leading magazine ‘Financial Investigator’. We will end with drinks and bites to give everyone the opportunity to meet, greet and network.

The presenting sponsors are: Artisan Partners – ‘Challenging the benchmark and the art of active investment’, Qualitas – ‘The Australian media’s property confusion and blockchain technology in property finance.’, Vontobel – ‘Finding value and decorrelation in Emerging Market Debt’ and Wellington – ‘Fixed Income Impact Investing’.

Location:
Huize Frankendael | Middenweg 72
1079BS Amsterdam | The Netherlands

‘Off Ice On Topic’ Event – March 14th 2016 – Huize Frankendael – Amsterdam – Event Topic: “Addressing Non Plain Vanilla Betas to Survive the Low Yield Environment”

On March the 14th 2016 we had our second ‘Off Ice on Topic’ event. The event topic was: “Addressing Non Plain Vanilla Betas to Survive the Low Yield Environment”

Presentations were given by:

Qualitas | Andrew Schwartz – Group Managing Director | Download

Wellington | Kent Stahl Director of Investment Strategy and Risk | Download

Achmea IM | Raymond Verstraelen – Head of Sovereign Fixed Income | Download

Corestone | Paul van Gent – CIO | Download

The low yield environment forces institutional investors to think outside the box. Specially for Dutch pension funds the low yield environment is challenging since regulation and reserve requirements are constraining them. They can not change their asset mix in a rigorous way and can only apply  limited changes. Given these constrains they have to find their way to survive the low yield environment.
