Overview of 2015 Programs (PDF)

In the development of PPI programs, we strive for a balance and an integration of macro geopolitical, economic issues that affect investors active in international markets and the practitioner's perspective on specific aspects and best practices of fund management, portfolio construction and the investment environment.
 

PPI organizes four annual members-only programs: two Roundtables in North America, one in Asia and the PPI Executive Seminar (PES) in conjunction with the Asia Roundtable.  

These programs operate under the Chatham House Rule, which means that all remarks by speakers and participants are off the record. We cap the number of attendees and require that all participants observe PPI's strict no-marketing rule to ensure an active dialogue. These practices have proven to be effective for encouraging openness and a deeper sharing of information and experiences.
 

PPI also partners with other organizations, such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB), to produce customized programs for specific audiences.

Summer Roundtable Theme:

Diversification Through Real Asset Investment

In the year 2000, less than 1% of a sample of 800 defined benefit funds held any investments in natural resources or infrastructure. Today, the story is quite different; in 2010, 32% or pension funds had natural resources in their portfolios, and 28% had infrastructure. Europe leads the way, with over half holding natural resources and 39% with infrastructure. With the recent price correlation in U.S. stocks and bonds, institutional investors have been boosting their alternative investments in an attempt to create portfolio buffers. In 2014, Quantitative Easing programs have caused investors to seek high returns through the use of alternatives; this coupled with the opening up of pools of institutional capital have created a highly competitive investment environment for real assets. 

 

What sort of challenges will investors face as they dive further into the asset class? Working with governments - both in Public-Private Partnerships and beyond – will be one challenge, as funds look to circumvent barriers to enter foreign markets. Working with development banks will present both challenges and opportunities, as the need for infrastructure development in emerging economies becomes stronger. Aside from infrastructure, commodities have experienced a bear market in 2014 – will this continue? How should investors with different levels of risk tolerance, objectives, size and mandate consider real assets?
