Pension Bridge ESG Summit 2021: creating a safe environment for critical learning and debate
Following the successful launch of the Pension Bridge ESG Summit last February, we are once again preparing to bring together investors, consultants and managers to discuss how ESG is impacting on our industry - with our next virtual event taking place from Tuesday February 23rd to Thursday February 25th, 2021.
With ESG considerations increasingly influencing investor allocation decisions, especially with D&I becoming a major factor in the current climate, we are expecting a surge of interest from investors, consultants and managers anxious both to understand and inform investment sentiment, and of course to forge new relationships with like-minded individuals and organizations.
The 2021 edition is expected to address the following issues:
Diversity and Inclusion: The role of investors and managers in driving change
Impact Investing: Can it be institutionalized and what structures work best?
Climate Change: Understanding how and when these issues will impact your portfolios
Corporate Governance: The evolving role of investors in holding firms to account
How are US investors starting to roll out ESG programs and why is there still hesitation?
What lessons can North American institutions learn from their European counterparts?
The awkward questions to ask when assessing manager ESG credentials
Investing in Emerging Markets through an ESG lens
We will reveal our key speakers over the next few weeks, but we expect an exceptionally strong line up of the most prominent and influential thinkers on ESG from across the investment world.
Taking place for the first time in a virtual environment, this February’s Pension Bridge ESG Summit will use new technology to ensure you can participate in all aspects of the event, with dynamic Q&A sessions, interactive audience polls, as well as having dedicated time during one-on-one meetings to speak to other organizations that work in similar strategies or across similar remits.
Once again, we will provide a controlled attendance structure with over 300 institutional investors and consultants expected, and only a maximum of 100 manager firms permitted. Access is free to LPs.
Pension Bridge ESG Summit 2020
The inaugural Pension Bridge ESG Summit launched with great success in San Diego. In February 2020, we were excited to welcome over 200 attendees to our first ESG focused conference , for a day and half of learning, face-to-face networking and business development.
With research showing a growing number of institutional investors incorporating ESG factors into their decision making, and a broad range of tactics being applied across asset classes, the event provided a platform to learn about and debate the evolving best practices being developed.
Discussions covered a wide range of ESG topics across an array of asset classes, engaging the audience of senior investment professionals who were at varying stages of their ESG implementation.
