ESG Conference: ESG into practice (Fully Booked)
Tue 19 Jun 18 at Radisson Blu Portman Hotel, London

ESG, the environmental, social and governance issues related to investing have reached mainstream – are you ready?

The step from understanding the theory to implementing it in practice can be challenging, but this conference will give attendees the skills to close that gap.

You will get an overview of the landscape and then participate in workshops to learn how to overcome the challenges of implementation. The conference will end with an interactive panel so you can get expert advice.

Our list of expert speakers includes:

  • Eion Murray, Head of Investment, Hermes 
  • Madeleine King, Co-Head of Investment Grade Research, Legal & General Investment Management
  • Eimear Toomey, Director of Institutional Relations, Sustainalytics
  • Michael Ridley, Director, Green Bonds and Corporate Credit, Global Banking and Markets, HSBC
  • Cecilia Barsk, Director, Client Relations (UK & Nordics), Sustainalytics
  • Peter Michaelis, Head of Sustainable Investment, Liontrust

Five years ago ESG existed at a small departmental level in some investment management firms, but today it is embedded across the industry. The principles are clear and large amounts of research support ESG investing, not just to maintain high standards, but also to reap higher returns. Attend CFA UK's ESG conference and make sure you are part of this important shift.

Who should attend?

This conference is essential for ESG Practitioners, Research Analysts, Investment Managers, Asset Owners, and Consultants.
