2021 CAiP Virtual Forums Series

The 2021 CAiP Virtual Series will be YOUR HOME to valuable insights and influential connections. All within an easy to access, secure, web-based platform that captures the very essence of what CAiP is all about – highly technical information and face-to-face discussions.

Headlined by pension fund executives, each virtual forum will feature thought leader keynote presentations, pension plan executive power panels, spotlight sessions pairing industry experts with pension plan execs, and the ability to interact with pension fund community members during video chat sessions and other designated times.

This year’s virtual series will be organized by Asset Class and will deliver more than 16 hours of interactive, essential industry insights and technical information, which allows us to delve deeper into the challenges facing fund allocators and managers.

The 2021 CAiP Virtual Forums Series Includes:

NEW 2021 Virtual Forums Just Added:

  • Real Assets | Nov 10
    The global real asset market continues to navigate a regionalized recovery shaped by ongoing fiscal and monetary support, low-interest rates, and new geopolitical risks. Like other markets, they reflect the pandemic’s tendency to drive change and disruption. In fact, a significant shift toward sustainability (ESG) is underway and the damage from climate change should boost economic growth and positively impact real estate and infrastructure assets. Our roster of expert speakers --composed of senior Pension Fund executives and leading asset managers-- will provide an economic & geopolitical outlook, examine the opportunities in industrial real estate and share insights on how they are using real asset investments to construct a portfolio for the new era. 
  • Private Capital | Nov 23
    Although the coronavirus pandemic upended the global economy, several private market sectors demonstrated remarkable resilience. In fact, institutional investors continue to see private markets as a means of generating their target returns in a low-yield environment. Our roster of expert speakers --composed of senior Pension Fund executives and leading asset managers-- will share their insights on which markets are holding up well, how to navigate the changing landscape of private credit, and how investors can find private debt opportunities in the middle market. 
  • ESG & Sustainable Investments| Dec 15
    Join us as we further explore the ESG strategies institutional investors are employing to drive meaningful change while transforming their alternative investment portfolios. Our roster of expert speakers --composed of senior Pension Fund executives and leading asset managers-- will provide answers on how you can minimize risk via ESG asset allocations, help you access new opportunities and avoid future pitfalls by driving ESG initiatives in emerging markets, and chronicle the evolution of pension fund governance.
