A host of Mercer’s most senior investment professionals along with a range of independent trustees, asset managers, and fiduciary evaluators spoke at PP’s inaugural DeskFlix to discuss how schemes are coping with the Covid-19 crisis and what these sorts of events can teach us for the future.

The PP DeskFlix will be held on 23 June

 

PP's first virtual DeskFlix event will run on 23 June and see our speakers open up as to the market outlook for schemes, the opportunities the current crisis presents, and the future of governance in a post-Covid-19 world.

You can register for the event here.

The event will include a live presentation from Mercer's head of UK fiduciary management Dan Melley on what these crises tell us about the future, and a session on the market outlook for the months ahead by Mercer's head of asset allocation Rupert Watson.

It will also include a live interview with Mercer EMEA and Asia CIO Niall O'Sullivan on making hay when the sun isn't shining - looking at how schemes can offset market pain through the way they govern their schemes.

The DeskFlix event will also look at areas in which schemes may be able to find value in the current market environment - with KKR's Chris Sheldon and Ares Management's Blair Jacobson taking a look at the opportunities within corporate credit and privately generating returns as options for consideration by schemes.

The full agenda for the event can be seen here.

And, at a time of immense change for fiduciary management following the Competition and Markets Authority's review into the sector, Ross Trustees' Susan Andrews and XPS Pensions Group's André Kerr will speak as part of a panel discussing the future of UK fiduciary management.
