European Investment Roundtable Spring

Feb 27th - Feb 29th 2024
Hotel Atlantic Hamburg

Our European Investment Roundtable Spring (formerly known as European Pension Symposium) is now in its thirty second year. The Roundtable continues to be the flagship event for the industry, convening the key decision makers to discuss the issues of the day. The last year has been a period of immense economic change and uncertainty in Europe. A year that has seen the continuous Russian invasion of the Ukraine, runaway inflation, and skyrocketing interest rates have come to define a turbulent economic landscape. This year’s roundtable will allow a moment to reflect on how European asset owners and their managers are approaching this new economic environment, one year on. What has the investment community learned so far and what further change can they expect to come?

This well-established meeting has historically convened up to 80 European pension and insurance fund executives for a three-day programme of interactive workshops, panel sessions, guest speakers, and social activities. The meeting will offer a unique, off-the-record setting for attendees to share innovative ideas and best practices among European institutional asset owners and managers.

This is an invitation-only event and all discussions are held under Chatham House Rule to enable a candid exchange of opinions. The event is free of charge for qualified investors with partnership opportunities available for asset managers.
