She now Chairs the pension fintech firm pensionsync and is an adviser to the Board of Huntswood Group and social enterprise business SalaryFinance.

In a recent interview where Baroness Ros Altmann discussed why the cost of pensions have increased significantly and how pension funds are dealing with some of the challenges they are facing today, she states that “In the last decade, monetary policy has posed a huge new challenge to pension funds." She then adds “The reduction in long-term interest rates has significantly increased the cost of providing pensions, resulting in rising deficits. Thus many pension funds needed to outperform liabilities not match them.”

The 19th annual European Pensions & Investments Summit is the ultimate meeting point, bringing elite buyers and sellers together. The Summit offers regional pension investors and international fund managers and consultants an intimate environment for focused discussion of the key new drivers shaping institutional asset allocations. The Summit includes presentations on alternative investment avenues, risk management, conquering the low interest rate environment by securing long-term investment opportunities, and achieving ESG integration across the entire pension portfolio.
