PensionsEurope is an International non-profit organisation based in Brussels representing national associations of pension funds for workplace and other funded pensions. The aim of PensionsEurope is that people in Europe will have good pensions. For this, PensionsEurope advocates at European and International level for good funded pensions covering more people.

The PensionsEurope annual conference brings together leading experts in pensions, as well as pension professionals and EU officials to exchange views and best practices on the most topical issues in the pension landscape.

The post Covid shifts - high inflation, high interest rates and economic uncertainty combined with increasing demographic challenges, are putting large pressure on pensions. Pension funds are key to finding solutions to these fundamental changes, turn them into opportunity, and guarantee fair and sustainable retirement provisions to all.

The conference 2023 ‘’How to protect pensions in the time of turmoil’’ will present the current macroeconomic situation of Europe, the challenges faced by the pension funds and the solutions that can be envisaged by policymakers and institutional investors to protect people.

The full day conference is planned as a hybrid event and will consist of keynote speeches, presentations and panel discussions from key stakeholders in pensions and beyond.

Main topics:
  • Ingredients of good risk management for IORPs
  • Europe at risk? The known and the unknown
  • DB and DC schemes – Risks, solutions, and opportunities?
  • Derivatives and clearing - way forward?
  • Beyond economics the health and social costs of the recent crises
  • Innovation in plan administration as a response to turmoil
