With an increasing rate of interest and activity surrounding ESG investments, we provide you a forum for critical learning and debate across this important subject matter.
Over the past five years, the importance of ESG has grown exponentially within the investment industry across the globe, with Morningstar recently reporting growth in ESG focused funds for the fifth consecutive quarter, to over $2.3 trillion in Q2 2021, and Bloomberg predicting that global ESG assets will exceed $53 trillion by 2025. Whilst Europe leads the way, the US is expected to expand quickly within this sector, dominating it over the next months and years.
Responsible investing is, however, not only limited to environmental issues.
In the wake of 2020, the world experienced a seismic cultural shift that has never been seen before, culminating in an urgency for the improvement of racial and gender equality on a global basis. Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is now see as paramount, with research proving that firms with diverse leadership teams consistently outperform those that don’t.
With consumers demanding greater responsibility be taken by both investors and managers when seeking investments, it is now imperative that you find new ways of aligning your portfolios, to both ESG and DE&I principles, whilst still generating financial returns.
Join us in San Diego, as we bring together an audience of 300 investment professionals from North America’s top institutional investors, investment consultants and asset managers, for insightful conversations and in-depth knowledge sharing, to gain tangible action points that can be implemented into your investments.
