50 Years of Foresight

The Arab Pensions Conference 2021 will be hosted in Manama, Bahrain on November 16 and November 17. The conference which will be held digitally under the patronage of HE Lieutenant-General Dr. Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Chairman of Bahrain’s Supreme Council of Health, and Chairman of Al-Hekma Retired Society, is organised by Fintech Robos for Savings and Pensions Apps and is expected to attract 400 delegates. 

The conference brings together bright minds from government pension funds, government agencies, asset management firms, actuary firms, audit firms, financial industry, HR leaders labour unions, employee benefits specialists and Fintech firms, to discuss how a more sustainable and futureproof retirement framework can be built. The event will be the only event highlighting the pension industry in the MENA region.

A debate held during the conference will highlight what was once the region’s golden 50 years of pension, when pension funds and benefits were thriving regardless of unstable economy and labour markets; and what should be done in order to build a vital pensions industry for the future. Speakers from global think-tank institutions will shed light on the predicted demographics and investment returns of the MENA pension funds over the next 50 years, and how the private sector and FinTech technologies are bound to in play a key role.
