Alistair will share thoughts on the implications of auto enrolment for defaults, what increased participation rates could mean for future innovation in Ireland and what we can learn from overseas experiences.

DAY 2 ONLINE - WEDNESDAY 26TH OCTOBER
Finding secure income in today’s market – the role that real estate debt can play within pension scheme portfolios Sam Murphy, Product Manager, Real Estate Product UK, Schroders Capital. The growth, inflation and rate outlooks continue to present trustees with challenges. Finding sources of ‘secure’ income for pension schemes in this environment is particularly difficult and made more uncertain due the proximity many scheme’s now have to buy out or adopting self sufficiency. From an investment perspective, certain private credit asset classes are still well positioned to deliver secure income. Today we will specifically explore the merits and benefits of real estate debt relative to public market alternatives, and explore the level of illiquidity that trustees might willingly adopt and what real estate debt can offer in terms of liquidity.
