The longest-running private equity forum focused on bringing together fund managers, institutional investors, and expert advisors to discuss ESG issues across alternative asset classes will return to London on 9-10 November, co-hosted with the PRI.

The key theme for this year will be climate change, the route to net-zero, and the rise of impact investing. Hear from the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance who will discuss their approach, expectations of managers and the impact on capital allocation.
