2020 has seen more changes than anyone could have predicted. The novel coronavirus sent shocks through the markets. And monetary and fiscal policy makers responded in unprecedented ways, potentially shifting the economic landscape for years to come. Many Canadian pension plans were forced to change how they operate. How have they weathered the storm? What worked? What didn’t? And what opportunities exist in the current investment context? Further, how has technology played a role through the coronavirus crisis and what role will it play going forward? The 2020 Investment Innovation Conference will feature expert presentations — in a new, virtual format — to help pension plans navigate this new world.

Who Should Attend this Event?
The conference is an exclusive, educational forum that brings together senior representatives of Canadian pension plan sponsors, as well as representatives from the academic, custodial and money management communities.

How Do I Attend?
Participation is by-invitation-only. For more information on the Investment Innovation Conference, please email Alison Webb (, publisher of Canadian Investment Review for consideration.
