The 8th Annual New England Institutional Forum is an educational initiative designed through close coordination with the region’s leading institutional investors to build peer communities that merge global best practices with local expertise. The forum is designed to bring together fund leadership teams, investment officers, board members, trustees, and their consultants representing the New England institutional investment community.
The forum's agenda was developed through extensive local travel and feedback from the institutional investor community representing institutional asset owners across public and corporate pension plans, endowments, foundations, insurance portfolios, healthcare plans, and investment consultants.
Conference participants will be able to earn up to 8 CPE credits in the fields of economics and finance.

Our equity panel will measure the true cost of the stock market crash and ask if COVID-19 reduced the indexing revolution to another too-big-to-fail enterprise.
FIXED INCOME RISK
The onset of COVID-19 has challenged the perception of the bond market as a safe-haven. Our panel will show how the difference between fixed income risk and opportunity is simply a matter of tolerance.
PRIVATE MARKET IMMUNITY
The novel coronavirus will be a Rorscharch test for the "golden age" private equity and the now $1 trillion private debt asset class. Will criticism of value extraction in private equity and unease with limited partner default deepen amid COVID-19?

Our panel will evaluate hedge fund performance versus indexation and replication in the wake of COVID-19.

Ownership of commercial real estate and privatized infrastructure has become ubiquitous to institutional asset allocation. But the novel coronavirus is a sign of real asset risk to come.
