Pension funds, those stalwarts of conservative investment, are continuing to move into alternative assets faster than any other kind of investor, according to data gathered in 2012.

The 2013 Global Alternatives Survey by Towers Watson, the consultancy, in association with FTfm, shows pension fund assets held by the top 100 asset managers that deal with pension funds increased by 8 per cent, from $1.23tn in 2011 to $1.33tn in 2012.

The Towers Watson Global Alternatives Survey finds that about 19% of global pension fund assets are now invested in alternatives, compared to 5% in 1997.
