The Concept

The IPE Breakfast Seminar Series are targeted, niche events with specific content that cuts to the core of the topic under discussion providing pension funds and similar institutional investors with insight, valuable advice and inspiration, as well as a forum for discussion of the latest issues. Visiting major cities across Europe, each seminar runs from 8.00 to 12.00 and features a selection of presentations and debates from leading industry speakers, service providers and fellow pension fund executives over breakfast and coffee.

As small closed events that are only open to pension funds and other institutional investors invited by IPE, the IPE Breakfast Seminars have limited availability. We recommend you register early to secure your place, subject to approval, at one or more breakfasts.
