EUROPE – An unusual convergence of pensions and investment industry conferences on Tuesday April 25 has claimed its first victim: Credit Suisse.

There were to be at least six events taking place or starting in Europe on what some have termed ‘Super Tuesday’. Locations range from Amsterdam, Stockholm, Rome and London.

Now the Swiss bank has postponed its ‘Project 2030 - Bridging The Gap Through Alternative Thinking’ conference in London, citing “conflicting events”. It will be held later this year, a statement said.

Remaining in the diary for the day are ‘Hedge Funds for Pension Funds’ (Amsterdam) run by IQPC, Hedge Funds World Scandinavia (Stockholm) run by Terrapinn and Absolute Return Strategies for Pension Funds (also Stockholm) with SPS.

Pensions Week is holding an LDI event in London on the day, while Rome is host to a securities lending conference. Legg Mason is also holding an event in London on the same day. And Northern Trust is planning an Investment Manager Forum.
