Opal Group's annual public funds conference addresses issues that are critical to the investment success of senior public pension fund officers and trustees in the new millennium. Concerns of funding liabilities for beneficiaries in a world of declining returns yet maintaining a balance between the risk/reward paradigms is center in the mind of many trustees and representatives of pension plans around the country. The exchange of ideas both in and out of the session halls is key in educating and identifying viable alternatives that will address these concerns. We will discuss how surplus returns should affect employee benefit plans; closely examine the processes for selection and evaluation of investment managers.
Opal Group will kick off the event with its Annual Regatta Cup, in which attendees will have the opportunity to work with a professional sailing charter crew while competing against industry peers.
Attendees from the Family Office Forum and the Public Funds Summit are invited to our Summer Social Bash networking event (July 19, 2016 starting at 6:30 PM), which includes an open bar, great food, live music, and the presentation of the Global Impact Award to Ambassador R. James Woolsey.
