    Peeping behind the curtain: private market investments in DC pensions

    With so much to uncover about how private market investments could fit into DC pension fund strategies, we look at some of the challenges and how they might be addressed.

    Rita Butler-Jones, Head of DC at Legal & General, is joined by Christy Lindsay, Head of Private Markets Distribution, and Martin Dietz, Head of Diversified Strategies, to discuss what we mean by private market investments, the potential benefits of these type of assets for DC savers, and the obstacles that need to be overcome to access opportunities for scheme members in a responsible way.

    UK election special: our experts discuss investor implications

    UK election special: our experts discuss investor implications

    The accuracy of opinion polls has meant that the initial reaction of sterling assets to a new government has been relatively muted. But irrespective of a change of politicians, for investors the key issues remain the same – namely the rise of geopolitics, immigration, deglobalisation and fiscal versus monetary policy. 

    In this podcast, our panel of experts  - Sonja Laud, Chief Investment Officer, James Carrick, Global Economist and Chris Jeffery, Head of Macro Strategy - discuss the issues facing today’s investor, while concluding that, given combined risks have increased, our preference, as ever, is to achieve the right mix of uncorrelated asset classes and return profiles. 

    This podcast is hosted by Mark Johnson, Head of UK Institutional & Wholesale and was recorded on 05 July 2024.

    This podcast is hosted by Frances Watson, Senior Content Manager and was recorded before the European Central Bank decision.

Let down by disclaimers

It’s ok but the bit at the end about not being able to photocopy the podcast really annoys me
