NCTR’s Annual Conference provides the opportunity for all pension systems’ staff, members and key stakeholders

to come together, collaborate and share ideas, while hearing the latest pension news and challenges.

Striking the right balance between risk and return in the post-pandemic world is more important than ever for public pension plans and those whose retirement security depends on them.

Governmental plans’ resilience in the face of the economic and societal challenges of COVID-19 has been amazing! It has also underscored how asset allocation is one of the most critical decisions public pension trustees make. Deciding on the right mix of stocks, bonds, cash, and other asset classes has been critical to the financial success of our systems, as well as the financial security of our plan participants and beneficiaries during these challenging times.

How do you strike the correct balance, particularly in the face of a worldwide crisis? Can you really know your risk tolerance ahead of time, before the risk – often unanticipated – arises? How successful are you in persevering with the implementation of those allocations in the face of the challenges of the “new normal?”

To find answers to these key questions, join your peers from across the country as, together, we listen and learn how to leverage new insights from some of the best in the business. Because the success of public pensions has not been by chance, but by design!

With each day dedicated to a back-to-basics theme centered on asset allocation, covering a range of topics from stocks, fixed income investments, and private equity, to real estate and infrastructure – the bottom line is NCTR’s 99th Annual Conference will educate and equip you with the fundamental knowledge and tools to persevere in an ever-changing world.

After all, that is the story of public pensions – Resilient by Design!
