Conference: ESG investing - the practical realities
Tue 29 Oct 19 at etc. venues, London

There is growing demand for ESG integrated investment. Clients are aware that their fiduciary duties require them to take ESG factors into consideration. So, too, do regulators. But the investment profession is still at an early stage in establishing best practices in ESG integration. This conference focuses on where and how investment professionals should integrate ESG into their processes.

What are the right approaches with respect to security analysis and valuation? Where does ESG fit within portfolio construction and portfolio management? This conference delivers the answers.

The conference - which will contribute to the development of CFA UK's new Certificate in ESG Investing - features multiple, practical perspectives from leading practitioners as well as contributions from:

  • Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England
  • Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the PRI

This conference is designed for both:

  • those building their skills and knowledge in this critical field
  • those that want to hone and advance their understanding

Announced speakers:

  • Nick Robins, Professor in Practice - Sustainable Finance at LSE
  • Mark Lewis, Global Head of Sustainability Research at BNP Paribas Asset Management
  • Nina Reid, Director, Responsible Property Investment, M&G Real Estate
  • Benjamin Yeoh, CFA Portfolio Manager of Global Equities, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Global Asset Management
  • Mitch Reznick, CFA, Head of Research and Sustainable Fixed Income, Hermes Fixed Income
