The Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) at the Department of Finance and the Department of Economics, Copenhagen Business School, is proud to announce its third conference:

PeRCent Annual Conference 2017

Learn more about the arguments for active vs. passive investment strategies in pension funds; about the return we can expect going forward; how individuals change consumption behaviour around the time of retirement; an overview of what we know about defined contribution plans; and how housing affects consumption, both via the consumption-wealth effect and during retirement. Listen to panel discussions with high-profile representatives from the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, the Danish pension sector, and academics. And listen to the top US economist, James Poterba, talk about how the future developments of global population patterns will influence real interest rates in the future.
