Interest in sustainable and responsible investing is rapidly growing and gaining momentum as public awareness regarding the climate crisis is increasing and the COVID-19 pandemic got investors prioritising firms’ social and governance qualities. Throughout 2020, investors injected record sums into ESG funds, beating traditional investment funds. As the industry and society further contemplate about how to effectively conduct socially responsible investing and the post-Brexit transition period has come to an end, regulatory changes are anticipated.

Join us at this forum to get the latest update from the Regulator and to gain insight into the UK proposed taxonomy and disclosure regulations, Sustainability Benchmarks and to learn about client suitability preferences and how it will affect firms’ investment strategies.
