The BMI session of 10th February 2021 was lit up by a very energetic professional Mr. Shreyas Sridhar, Solutions Director of Legal and General’s Institutional Retirement Division, London.
This session was really a very informative one, where Mr. Shreyas, through his factual knowledge and expertise, was able to easily brief us about the opportunities in investing at the right places, to have a secured future, post retirement.
The session began with Mr. Shreyas giving a short introduction about himself. He relinquished the habit of people, not to think about their retirement at the early stages of their career and emphasised that we must start preparing ourselves for our retired life to be prosperous in the future and its essentiality. The causes and effects of ageing demographics was discussed, followed by the investment gap. Sectors such as Infrastructure, Regeneration, Housing and Clean Energy are in strong demand of funding. They rely on the traditional fund providers such as banks and governments, however, not all get benefitted from them. Mr. Shreyas then poured in his ideas on how to fill the shortfall of funds in these sectors, for which the solution is “INVESTMENT”. Towards the end, he mentioned about the different opportunities and liabilities in this sector, such as, Corporate Pension Schemes, Long-term savings, climate crisis, etc.
The session ended with an interactive Question and Answer session.
