WU Gutmann Center Symposium 2015

RETIREMENT AND ASSET MANAGEMENT

August 19, 2015

Concerns about financing pensions, retirement planning, demographics and the long-term performance of pension funds have existed even before the financial crisis. The current economic situation, as well as the short- to medium-term outlook have not alleviated these concerns. On the contrary, the retirement-related challenges for households, the investment industry and economies around the world are still a major subject of political, economic and scientific debate, and will remain a challenge for societies around the world in the coming years. 

The main purpose of the WU Gutmann Symposium 2015 is to discuss various aspects of retirement, in particular its implications and relevance for asset management. The papers of the symposium will focus on the following range of topics: the role of financial institutions, lifetime investment strategies, saving for future generations, the role of demographics, or financial literacy, and other aspects related to the general topic.

We are proud to welcome highly renowned experts from all over the world who will present their state-of-the-art research in the field and cordially invite you to attend the WU Gutmann Center Symposium 2015.
