The WorldPensionsSummit (WPS) is a platform for and by pension professionals, which aims at providing a truly global learning and networking experience. This year, the WorldPensionSummit’s programme evolves around the theme ‘Shifting Powers + Sustainable Investment: Separating the signal from the noise’.
During plenary sessions and dedicated tracks of choice delegates will discuss the long-term components of vital ‘pension cross roads’, meaning the programme covers all aspects of pensions, integrated at a senior in depth level.
Investment strategies | climate change and sustainability
Climate change and sustainability thought leaders are invited to join the debate on how asset owners can adapt their investment strategies to the changing global economic environment.
Keynote speakers include Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), John Elkington, Author and Sustainable Development Thought-Leader and Sir Roger Gifford, Chairman of the Green Finance Institute.
Why The Hague
When asked why The Netherlands in general and The Hague in particular were repeatedly chosen as venue for WPS, Nikki Pirrello, Associate Group Publisher, P&I Marketing & Conference says: “The Netherlands is known as a place for pension innovation. That is why we ended up in The Hague, the international centre for justice, which aligns very nicely with the mission of most of the large pension funds”.
Due to The Netherlands’ reputation of good pension systems, with many pension fund organisations located in The Hague, WPS 2019 invites a selected group of pension fund executives on a discussion tour, visiting Dutch pension funds and meeting global leaders in pension fund management and investment.
