The Director-General, National Pension Commission (PenCom), Mrs. Chinelo Anohu-Amazu, said the World Pension Summit, Africa Special, that will kick off this week will deepen discussions around ensuring that pension funds are invested in the real sector for visible and measurable impact on the economy, while booting retirement benefits.

The DG said she is excited by the opportunities that the World Summit will present in providing solutions to some of Africa’s most pressing pension investment challenges.

Global experts on pension innovation; leaders of thought and key practitioners are expected in Abuja between September 27 and 28th to brainstorm on key elements of developing and structuring a sustainable pension system for Nigeria and other African nations.

With the theme: “Pension Innovations: The African Perspective”, the summit is designed by PenCom in partnership with the Pension and Investments/World Pension Summit, Amsterdam, will focus on innovations in the pension industry in Nigeria and Africa.

The World Pension Summit “Africa Special” is the platform to exchange knowhow, supporting professionals in social security and in all aspects of pensions to gain the expertise. It is also about taking the pragmatic essential steps to professionalise pensions and make them ‘future proof’.

The PenCom DG said the Summit, which is well-packaged to attract professionals around the world, is aimed at exchanging expertise between all pension professionals in Africa and to stimulate market developments and pension innovation.

In particular, she said this year’s edition of the Summit would focus on key areas and experiences on relevant topics and developments such as pension innovations and the dynamics of pension investment (ALM, new asset classes, infrastructure investments).
