Due to safety concerns, organizational travel bans and the California Governor not allowing for large gatherings prior to the end of the summer, we have decided to go virtual for our 2020 Pension Bridge Annual. We feel this is in the best interest of our attendees as we want to avoid uncomfortable feelings surrounding a gathering.
Instead of holding the event over the course of two days as we had originally planned, we have spread it out across five days. The 2020 Pension Bridge Annual will now take place from Monday, August 24th, through Friday, August 28th. The sessions will take place each day from 12:00 Noon Eastern to approximately 3:30 PM.
The 2020 Pension Bridge Annual will be celebrating our 15th year of this event. The virtual program is expected to bring in 500+ pension funds, endowments, foundations, family offices and consultants. That’s more than double the 250 we had expected for the live event.
We have instituted valuable one-on-one meetings of your preference throughout the Agenda. We understand allocators and consultants have not been able to conduct any on-site manager due diligence meetings which they are accustomed to. This will be a great opportunity to have some brief meetings with those organizations that you find of particular interest.
The focus at 2020’s event will be capital preservation and gaining an understanding of the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the investment landscape. Learn from the experts about identifying drawdown risks and how to recognize the economic tremors created from this pandemic. The Pension Bridge Annual will uncover various structural transformations and key reward drivers that will be beneficial for long-term fiscal sustainability.
In addition we will focus on climate change and technological innovation which will both continue to have a transformational impact not only on markets and investments, but on every aspect of our lives.
