The WU Gutmann Center for Portfolio Management is proud to announce its eighth symposium to be held at WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business), Austria. The general topic of the symposium is “Retirement and Asset Management”.

Concerns about financing pensions, retirement planning, demographics and the long-term performance of pension funds have existed even before the financial crisis. The current economic situation, as well as the short- to medium-term outlook have not avelliated these concerns. On the contrary, the retirement-related challenges for households, the investment industry and economies around the world are still a major subject of political, economic and scientific debate, and will remain a challenge for societies around the world in the coming years.
