Manama to host 3rd MENA Pensions Conference next week
What is the prevailing situation of pension globally and patterns of evolution in this vital sector? Are actuarial deficits in pension funds (globally) real or inflated, and how should they be understood? Can financial markets be a complementary alternative through meaningful pension products, and how should they be designed? Does the current legislation of financial regulators contribute to a flourishing pension industry? What are the best assets and asset allocations for pension investments? What is the digital ecosystem “Fintech” required to build a modern pension industry? With these six titles, the third annual Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Pensions Conference will open next Wednesday 31st October 2018 at the Four Seasons Hotel.
The conference, which will be inaugurated by His Excellency Lieutenant General Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, President of the Supreme Council of Health and Chairman of Al-Hekma Society for the Retired, begins with a working paper presented by H.E.
