“The death of DB pension has been proclaimed by many people. It’s a bit like the bumblebee that is way too heavy and compact to fly, but then it flies. So it’s intellectually stimulating to be in a position to think about how to make it work better, and also help me make it work in the future.”

Railpen is a relative rarity in the UK - a sector focused pensions provider serving the rail industry, and an open DB scheme. This podcast explores how Railpen manages its £34bn (€40bn) assets via a pooled fund structure with a multi-asset bias, how it approaches risk management, and how it sees ESG. 

In this new podcast series from IPE and IPE Real Assets, members of our editorial team speak to leading figures in the institutional investor community to curate a library of in-depth, focused content. 

The result will be a valuable library of downloadable insights into what motivates both individuals, teams, boards and trustees as they set about achieving their long-term investment goals with a view to improving the retirement outcomes of hundreds of millions of pension holders.
