Conference Overview

Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Investing is turning mainstream. The weight of regulators and policy makers, alongside increasing consumer interest and engagement means that ESG will continue to shape investment strategies across financial services, especially in the asset and fund management sector and for pension funds and trustees.

• What are the opportunities/risks in developing an embedded ESG investment process?
• With the continuing focus from policymakers, how might regulations change?
• How should pension funds assess and monitor investment managers’ activities?
• How do you measure the impact and financial implications of an ESG strategy?
• What type of data is needed to support investors’ decision making processes?

These and other key questions will be discussed by the expert panel of speakers.

Speakers at the event include representatives from:

KPMG
ABERDEEN STANDARD INVESTMENTS
HSBC GLOBAL ASSET MANAGEMENT
UBS
BESTRUSTEES
EVERSHEDS SUTHERLAND
M&G INVESTMENTS
CHURCH COMMISSIONERS FOR ENGLAND
CLIMATE BONDS INITIATIVE
SUSTAINALYTICS
