Annual Pensions & Retirement Summit 2020

The Pensions Industry has continued to grow globally and has registered steady growth over the last decade, with Assets under management growing by over 20% year-on-year in some markets. Despite this growth, the industry is still plagued by several key policy reform and governance related issues, regulatory impediments, administrative bottlenecks, and mismanagement of these entities, curtailing the industry's exponential impact and growth.

Africa's demographic mix presents an extremely critical and unique challenge to pension systems across the continent, currently and in the future, with such challenge requiring adequate reforms in pension system designs and structure. The Coronavirus (Covid19) pandemic has exacerbated the situation with global lockdowns leading to retrenchments, layoffs and redundancies which have negatively impacted the levels of pension savings across the globe.

In Africa, and in Sub-Saharan region in particular, some of the key issues and concerns relate to:

• Pension Coverage
• Pension Adequacy
• Investment opportunities
• Infrastructure Investments
• Capital markets Development
• Alternative investments
• Impact Investing
• Governance /ESG
• Regulatory frameworks
• Micro pensions
• Policy reforms
• Demographic bottlenecks- Aging populations
• Emerging Technologies
• Asset allocations and portfolio construction
• Boards/ Trustee development
• Asset Allocations-Prescribed assets
• Offshore Investments
• Employee benefits Design

To address the above challenges and concerns, Federated Management Institute will host a 3 day Pensions Summit, bringing together key industry experts, specialists and stakeholders with a diverse continental audience of industry representatives chiefly pensions and retirement funds with the sole aim to find innovative solutions and catalytic interventions to mitgate the industrys’ challenges through robust discussions and debates, presentations, case studies, industry insights, thought leadership and best practices, panel discussions and an interactive workshop.
