The Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Compass Investor Program will convene decision-makers from the investment sector to discuss issues that impact the industry’s ability to pursue alpha while having provided outsized returns for our society.

RFK Compass investors control close to 7 trillion USD in assets under management. They recognize that with their enormous collective and individual capital, power, and influence they can make a change in our world; and are gathering with like-minded decision-makers as well as thought leaders from policy to academia to focus on the “S” in ESG and ensure it remains a priority.

Here are some of the topics industry leaders will discuss at the summit:
• Outlook on responsible investing and market stability under the new Biden-Harris administration.
• Opportunities in the software technology investment sector and the role of investors in supporting tools and platforms that protect democratic discourse.
• Co-investment opportunities in 2021.
• What’s next for endowments with regard to racial and gender diversity among portfolio managers and within portfolio companies.
• COVID-19 vaccines and the challenges of availability and access.
