Mercer Investment Forum

  • Overview

    Nowadays investors face the challenge of generating returns when yields and risk premia are relatively low. Additionally, in an environment of economic and political fragility, many may have reached the limits of monetary policy effectiveness.

    Our experts will share insights and drive discussions on how institutional investors could look inward, to identify any characteristics of their approach, objectives or circumstances that could provide competitive advantage; and outward, to build a portfolio of assets and strategies that maximizes their advantages and improves the likelihood of meeting their long-term objectives while managing the risk of capital impairment.
