IPE Conference and Awards 2019: Event Buzz

first_img Lars Rohde speaking at the IPE Conference and Awards 2019“Pension consultants think QE is a Faustian bargain, a bargain made with the devil you can never get out of. And that’s because QE has become deeply ingrained in the psyche of investors.”– Amin Rajan, CEO of CREATE-Research. ATP was named European Pension Fund of the Year. The top prize was one of six awards scooped by Denmark’s biggest pension fund.Conference buzz“There is now a lot of activity focused on reducing risks. But the biggest risk is that you will not achieve any returns in the coming decades.”– Jaap van Dam, director of investment strategy at €238bn Dutch asset manager PGGM and chair of the European chapter of the 300 Club.  “It is you [as an asset owner] who has to decide with your advisers what is a Paris-aligned world, because you can only decide Paris-alignment based on a full self-sufficient economy. No individual company or sector can claim Paris-alignment because there are way too many assumptions about the other sectors.”– Andreas Hoepner, professor at University College Dublin and an independent member of the technical expert group advising the European Commission on sustainable finance. “There’s a squeeze between longevity issues – people are not dying according to plan any longer and it’s also a global phenomenon – and on the other hand very low expected returns in the future, so something has to give.”“To put it bluntly, if my pension is invested in long-term illiquid assets, I would prefer my pension company to be run by a younger CEO.”– Lars Rohde, governor of the central bank Danmarks Nationalbank The annual IPE Conference and Awards 2019 took place in Copenhagen, during 3 and 4 December.The conference highlighted and explored the most essential topics and challenges facing Europe’s highly diverse pensions industry, including sustainable finance, risk, reward and liquidity, and other political and economic challenges that the 2020s will bring.Leading industry players discussed solutions in open debates, keynote presentations and specially designed panels during a thought-provoking comprehensive two-day event, which also featured dedicated sponsor-led investor workshops.The evening awards ceremony celebrated various categories, including gold awards (best European pension fund, outstanding contribution, pension fund achievement of the year, and long-term investment strategy), silver, bronze, country/regional, and themed awards.  Jaap van Dam at PGGM“Never in my career at any time has it ever seemed like it wasn’t a particularly difficult and uncertain period”– Chris Brightman, CIO of Research Affiliates “Today’s externalities are predictors of tomorrow’s risk, which is why investors need to know them.”– Pavan Sukhdev, founder and CEO of GIST Advisory; president of WWF international; former special adviser and head of UNEP’s green economy initiative.last_img read more

Adopt-A-Pet Dog of the Week: Tiger Lily

first_imgFacebook56Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Adopt-A-PetMeet Tiger Lily! She is a 5- year-old, 54-pound PitBull/Boxer mix who is wondering why her forever people haven’t found her yet. Shelter volunteers say that her orange-brindle coat is stunning and that she has some of the loveliest subtle eyeliner and proportions a dog could have. Beauty is great and all that, but she also happens to be a sweet girl. She loves the water, basic commands for “sit” and “down,” does well on a leash, enjoys car rides, and playing fetch. Children in the home should be 13-years-old or older, kind, and dog-savvy. She has a couple of nice dog friends at the kennels, and is open to meeting new dogs with proper introduction and supervision. However she does not do well with some smaller dogs.If you are looking for a sweetheart like Tiger Lily, please schedule an appointment to meet and have fun. She will need a home where her people can be with her most of the time as she has separation anxiety. Check out her video on AAP Petfinder Page, and you will see why shelter volunteers love her so much.If you have further questions or would like to schedule an appointment to meet Tiger Lily in person, please contact the adoption team at Shelton Adopt-a-Pet. Emails are the preferred method of communication.Adopt-A-Pet has many great dogs and always need volunteers. To see all our current dogs, visit the Adopt-A-Pet website, our Facebook page or at the shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton. For more information, email [email protected] or call 360-432-3091.Hours of Operation: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.last_img read more
