In the post-pandemic era, fundamental transformations are taking place across society, the economy, investment and the working environments.

 

With Hong Kong at the forefront of these changes, how should organizations be prepared to confront the challenge of looking at the bigger picture, beyond the performance of your current pension design, and benchmark against the industry, as well as the needs and expectation of your employees?

 

In short, what would a new era in retirement investments look like?

 

At the Mercer Hong Kong MPF Forum 2022, our experts in pension and investment advisory, financial wellness and ESG frameworks will attempt to answer that very question. Along with industry experts and policy makers, we will discuss a wide range of topics and share insights and advices on,

 

  •  How does a new retirement planning mindset help us weather though the volatile, post-pandemic era?
  • How will digitalization, trends in individualism in DC/ Mandatory Provident Funds (MPF), and the development of green and sustainable finance will reshape the retirement and MPF industry in Hong Kong?
