ESG and Sustainable Investments Forum

9th Dec 2020
Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky
Amsterdam, Netherlands

 

The ESG & Sustainable Investments Forum previously scheduled for 22 April 2020 has been rescheduled to 9 December 2020.

About

The ESG and Sustainable Investments Forum will bring together senior heads of ESG & Impact investing from across the European institutional asset owner community. The Summit will discuss the rapid evolution of products and strategies available across the ESG universe, and comes as a direct result of trends and importance from the asset owner community.

Issues under discussion will include, how to differentiate in an ESG led portfolio? Are asset owners being strategic in their approach to Impact investing? Do asset owners fully understand some of the issues under each element of ESG and what is being prioritised?

Nearly every institution is looking at ways of doing more with ESG, typically by re-positioning to new strategies and managers. The ESG and Sustainable Investments Forum will examine this trend among European pension funds, endowments and foundations as well as selected insurance funds. Are some investors relying less on rankings and more on instinct when it comes to these types of funds? When will the world catch up to fill the gap on standardising ESG investments?
