Alternative investments by pension schemes: avoiding the legal pitfalls

Pension scheme trustees are increasingly encouraged to consider alternative investments as a means of delivering returns and diversifying their portfolios. A wide range of opportunities is available – but alternative investments present different legal risks which should be understood and addressed before signing up to new investments.

At this half-day pension seminar, experts from the Hogan Lovells pensions, real estate, banking and corporate teams  together with a guest speaker from Aon Hewitt, will consider the legal aspects of alternative investments for pension schemes.
