Keep on top of one of the biggest ever moves in investment and business at the RI Europe 2021 conference

The EU Green Deal and Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth are among the biggest shifts for business and finance since the introduction of global accounting standards or Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS) for investment managers.

They will be amplified rapidly under a US administration that shares many of the same aims and China’s huge involvement in the competitive race for a green global energy transition.

But, these are complicated shifts for investors and companies to understand and anticipate.

The RI Europe 2021 conference will be the forum for getting to grips with this massive, complex shift. And the RI EU Action Plan ‘How To’ Guide will act as the instruction manual for investors and companies.
