Professional Pensions’ latest webinar looked at how defined contribution (DC) investment strategies have delivered through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our panel of experts - including Columbia Threadneedle Investments' Andrew Brown, Buck's Mark Pemberthy, XPS Pensions Group's Sophia Singleton and DWA's Dean Wetton - assessed how well DC investment strategies have performed during the pandemic, how volatile they have been and whether there are areas that have been shown to be wanting.

The webinar also looked at how the conversation around ESG in DC schemes has changed during Covid-19 - looking particularly at ‘light touch' versus ‘heavy touch' exclusions and the sort of ESG members are increasingly expecting from managers.

Finally, it also assessed what came out of this year's Budget, looking at how the government might make it easier for DC schemes to invest in a broader range of assets.
