Navigating the global
investment landscape


Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) roundtables provide members a unique opportunity to explore issues related to long-term investment. Limited to roughly 120 senior executives from the institutional investor community, these programs offer a forum for honest and confidential discussions on important themes and trends that affect asset allocation, risk management, and investment decisions.

In today's complex environment for long-term investment, the Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) helps its members explore geopolitical and economic issues and derive tangible insights alongside trusted, industry-leading peers and external experts.

What PPI brings together is investment professionals/asset owners who are from all (...) corners of the world, with different perspectives coming together in one location—trying to understand and identify what are the key problems and talk about how to then navigate those issues.

Talent: Building Blocks of Winning Institutions and Industries

The competition for human capital is global, fierce, and binding. It underpins the most pressing issues of our day and affects policymakers, visionaries, and institutional investors alike. Whether it is the race between the United States and China to control key next-generation technologies, or the business behind the glamour of the entertainment industry, the ultimate prize is talent. How do we craft immigration policy to solidify robust labor markets while protecting national security? Besides compensation, why does talent stay or leave in asset management? Is preserving national identity congruous with accommodating the flow of talent? With innovation hubs springing up beyond Silicon Valley, how are venture capitalists sourcing entrepreneurs around the world? In addition to talent, the roundtable will also discuss developments in Europe as Brexit unfolds, Mexico’s new administration, the latest international pact on climate change mitigation, and turbulent global capital markets.


UPDATE 1/18/2019: The online registration period has ended, and the event is at capacity. All new registration and substitution requests will be added to the waitlist and may not go forward unless space opens up. Registration after today is subject to a late fee.
