Pension schemes’ market is the backbone of our economy as public and private welfare assets account for more than half of Italy’s GDP. Still, it is a relatively specialized sector whose complex dynamics tend to be little known among the non-experts.

We will dive into the day-to-day of a Chief Investment Officer at an Italian Social Security Agency, exploring what it is like to manage assets for a private pension scheme and navigate through the concepts of ALM and LDI. Furthermore, you will hear some advice tips to shape your career in this industry.
