The 2021 DCIF Annual Event
A complex puzzle: The investment challenges facing DC schemes today


The DCIF’s 2021 annual event took place on the 21st October at J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s Great Hall in London. By opting for a hybrid format, members could attend either online or in-person. Janette Weir, co-founder of Ignition House presented consumer insights on responsible investment. While, Richard Parkin, founder of Richard Parkin Consulting, launched a research paper, examining the big challenges in today’s DC investment environment. The event concluded with a panel, featuring Quietroom’s Caroline Hopper, LCP’s investment partner Dan Mikulskis and Nest Insight’s David Farrar, discussing the puzzling complexities in today’s DC investment space.
