1. Time to deepen diversification
Institutional investors have long recognized that diversification is an essential part of investing for the long-term.

2. “Investing for the End Game”
As Defined Benefit scheme funding levels improve and there is a sharper focus on the End Game, how can pension schemes set their investment strategy in order to meet their End Game ambitions – from hedging, to cashflow matching, to accessing alternative sources of income and becoming self-sufficient and/or “buyout aware”?

Unlisted investments could be the key to building outcome-based portfolios. By offering robust return potential and effective portfolio diversification, private markets assets offer a powerful means to help achieve investor goals.
