PMI Academy expands offering with new partnerships

The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has increased the number of PMI Academy partners to five, confirming the appointment of three new partners: T. Rowe Price, Caceis and InvestRFP.

The expansion aims to enhance the PMI Academy offering, including the provision of an easily accessible range of educational products and services under one umbrella.

Caceis is expected to work with the PMI on issues around sustainable governance, covering climate risks, ESG and cost transparency, whilst T. Rowe Price will share its fixed-income expertise.

InvestRFP, meanwhile, will look to share best practice for asset manager and fund selection, exploring how technology can simplify the request for proposals process and information flow.

The PMI has also renewed its partnerships with BlackRock and Penfida, having received around 200 attendees on the training sessions run with these partners over the past year.

Commenting on the news, PMI director of lifelong learning, Keith Hoodless, said that he was “very pleased PMI Academy is expanding and beginning to meet its potential”.

“When we see such globally recognised organisations choose to partner with the PMI to expand the depth of knowledge it can provide to the sector, then it just strengthens the brand and creates a positive environment and vibe for all of those who engage with the process,” he continued.

“I look forward to expanding the academy further as more organisations open themselves up to the opportunity it provides.”

The PMI Academy, which was initially launched in 2021, allows partners the opportunity to offer two training sessions or workshops in their area of expertise, and produce materials for the PMI knowledge library.
