Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) roundtables provide members a unique opportunity to explore issues related to long-term investment. Limited to roughly 120 senior executives from the institutional investor community, these programs offer a forum for honest and confidential discussions on important themes and trends that affect asset allocation, risk management, and investment decisions

In today's complex environment for long-term investment, the Pacific Pension & Investment Institute (PPI) helps its members explore geopolitical and economic issues and derive tangible insights alongside trusted, industry-leading peers and external experts.

With its unique geographical location in the Asia-Pacific, Australia has provided an interesting vantage point for discussions toward rethinking the changes and opportunities in the region as a result of a shifting global order. As the United States realigns its international priorities and China expands its overseas investments and influence, how will Southeast Asian countries, Japan, India, and others reposition their growth strategies? Will the Trans-Pacific Partnership grow and evolve? What other partnerships are being considered and negotiated? How will these trends and undercurrents affect asset prices in the mid-to-long run?
