Abstract

The sixth annual World Pensions Forum was held on 23-24 February 2017 at the Queen's House in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Over 120 representatives attended: from pension and sovereign funds, central banks and government agencies including financial regulators.

Topics discussed included environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) factors and the role of supranational institutions acting as facilitators, issuers and co-investors along- side pension funds.

The Forum also addressed the economic implications of pension reform in Europe and the United States, the empowerment of employee-nominated pension trustees and women board members, and how ‘best-in-class pension investors’ from the US, Britain, Australia, Canada, France and the Netherlands can foster a more effective form of asset ownership: fiduciary capitalism.

Keywords: ESG, SDGs, Governance, Pensions, Asset Owners, SWFs, World Bank, European Investment Bank, Fiduciary Capitalism, Trusteeship, Corporate Governance
