Three virtual streams
10am – 11:15am, Thursday 27 January
Economics and market outlook
During this first stream, our panel of economic and investment industry experts will describe the key issues over the next 12 months as we ask what is likely to excite or concern investors. We will consider the potential economic challenges ahead and what the impact of these will be for you.
The importance of climate change cannot be understated when it comes to investments. We will debate whether this is a factor which will cause inflation or, perhaps, deflation. And we will look at investing from a sustainability perspective – is this likely to lower or increase your returns?
10am – 11:15am, Tuesday 1 February
This stream will see us take a look at the bigger picture and the megatrends which have a seismic influence on the world of investments. Investors who are focused on the long term need to understand the major influences which will impact on the world so they are ready to capitalise on emerging opportunities.
We will look at megatrends in the areas of agriculture, renewable energy infrastructure and healthcare. And we will consider further the impact of climate change on the investment landscape of the future.
10am – 11:15am, Thursday 3 February
As part of the new climate risk reporting requirements (TCFD) and an increased focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations, investors are increasingly being asked to give their views on how they incorporate related risks and opportunities into their decision-making and monitoring. But to do that they need a clear understanding of what they’re trying to achieve with their investments – are they trying to reduce the risk of their investments specifically or do they have a wider societal or environmental goal too?
We’ll take you through the risks and opportunities of climate change and ESG investing so you can be clear on what risk you’re trying to mitigate and what opportunity you’re trying to capture, as well as the ways that you can align your actions with your beliefs.

More about our award-winning Investment team
Barnett Waddingham is the fourth largest investment consultant to pension schemes in the UK, offering truly independent consultancy services to institutional investors such as Trustees, Employers, Universities, Charities and Local Authorities.
Our Investment team consists of over 90 professionals overseeing more than 450 clients with over £70 billion in assets, collectively. We enjoy what we do and we aim to bring this enthusiasm to our discussions with you.
We owe our growth and free thinking approach to having no outside shareholders that we need to satisfy and we do not run an investment management or fiduciary management business. Neither do we offer our own master trust for DC members. This allows us to avoid conflicts of interest and leaves us free to provide bespoke advice suitable to your specific scheme and requirements.
We believe it is fundamental for stakeholders to understand their current position, their objectives and what needs to be achieved in order to meet these goals. We work collaboratively to reach an investment approach that benefits and protects your scheme members.
