How can we invest our pension in the best way possible?

Wednesday 12 December, 2018, 16:00-19:00, Solbjerg Plads 3 (SPs01), 2000 Frederiksberg

According to a news article in Berlingske(in Danish), the Danes that are going to retire decades from now may expect up to ten percent less pension than what we have been informed so far. This calculation comes from an expert committee, who has been charged with the task of obtaining more precise pension forecasts. Jesper Rangvid, Professor at CBS, is head of the expert committee and also director of PeRCent, CBS’ pension research centre. PeRCent would like to invite you to an after-work event on how Danish pension funds will build investment portfolios in future. At the event, you can meet chief investment officers Kasper Lorenzen (ATP), Ralf Magnussen, AP Pension, and Morten Malle, Lærernes Pension, who are administering around a thousand billion Danish kroner in total. They are all here to present their investment strategies. Jesper Rangvid will chair the session.
