For Switzerland’s numerous pension funds (AUM €750bn+), the traditional ESG focus has been on exclusion and ESG integration (for risk management). In the last year engagement, voting, and impact investing have grown significantly for asset owners, as HNW/private bank investors also sharpen their ESG attention. Swiss pension funds and insurers are also subject to regular PACTA (Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment) measures by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), testing their alignment against Paris 2 degrees targets.

RI Switzerland drops down to the country level to bring together Swiss regulators, investors, asset managers and service providers to examine and discuss these developments in results-driven panel discussions, case studies, and workshops.
