PenSam wants to increase alternatives through more partnerships

The Danish pension fund has partnered with both local and foreign peers while increasing its exposure to alternatives. CIO Claus Jørgensens sees partnerships as a good way to enter new alternative investments -- and he is open for more partnerships, he tells AMWatch.

PenSam already has a large portion of its assets invested in alternatives, but the Danish DKK 163bn (EUR 22bn) pension fund is looking to increase such allocations further, preferably through more partnerships.

"In general, it's our approach that, if we are to have access to alternatives in a professional and cost-effective way, then it must be done through partnerships because we do not have the volume and competence in all areas to get the access we need," says Claus Jørgensen, chief investment officer at PenSam, in an interview with AMWatch.
