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.
