Pensions and Benefits UK is hosting a breakfast briefing in partnership with Partner Group which those involved with pensions are free to attend. The topic discussed will be:

Breakfast Briefing: Illiquid assets- the future of DC?

DC savers often have a long investment horizon, making it theoretically possible to "harvest illiquidity premium" through investing in longer term strategies. Yet despite the overwhelming majority of DC savers falling under default strategies, these generally do not include illiquid assets. Support is now growing for making illiquid assets such as infrastructure, private credit or private equity part of DC default funds.

Indeed some of the largest UK DC plans have already added illiquid private investments to their defaults. This session will consider the rationale for using illiquid assets, fees and expense caps and platform availability.

Roberto Cagnati, Managing Director, Co-Head Portfolio Management, Partners Group
