Trustee Training Programme

A series of interactive, live training sessions designed to help expand your investment knowledge.


At Columbia Threadneedle Investments, we understand it can be hard to stay on top of the investment aspects of pensions, in addition to all your other day-to-day responsibilities. With this in mind, we have developed a series of training sessions designed for defined-benefit pension trustees, targeting all levels of investment experience.

Our programme covers a wide range of topics including macroeconomic basics; the hedging toolkit; combining hedging techniques with growth; and journey planning for DB pension schemes

Risk disclaimer

The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the original amount invested.


Session 3: Real assets for secure income

29 September 2022
Real assets are a constant within most scheme allocations and should continue to deliver the income focused returns desired. This session will give you the tools for future discussions with advisors, managers and members.
  • Real assets: Infrastructure and property – what are they ?
  • How do they fit into a pension scheme portfolio ?
  • Sustainable real assets – alignment to portfolio targets and tangible outcomes
