An Active Stance on Disruption

Putting pensions on the right side of change

T. Rowe Price, December 2019

Pension funds are grappling with an extraordinary investment environment, with unprecedented levels of disruption underway.  To get on the right side of change and maximise investment performance, navigating the risks and opportunities arising from disruptive forces, such as digital and environmental change, is crucial.

We stay alert to disruptive trends in the market, but we’ll also look to external managers to think about how they mitigate this within particular strategies.

Our report, an Active Stance on Disruption, identifies the disruptive forces that pension executives in Europe are most concerned about and discusses the role of  active investment management in addressing the dynamics of disruption.

The report is based on a survey carried out by Longitude Research of more than 200 European pension funds with nearly €880 billion/£800 billion of assets under management.
