As more and more investors make net zero commitments in the lead up to COP26, sustainability is at the forefront of investors’ minds. But what does it mean to invest sustainably? Are the metrics, measurements, returns and risks adequately framed and understood? How can leaders navigate the politics of sustainability and prevent greenwashing from prevailing? What are the allocation strategies and investments investors should be targeting and what are the tangible implications for investors’ portfolios? What is the role of asset owners in allocating capital and how do they overcome the obstacles they will face?

This online global event will bring together asset owners, managers and academics for a practical take on sustainable investment. In order to implement the sustainability goals that asset owners have set as strategic initiatives they will need board and C-suite buy-in and directive. This conference is specifically aimed at CIOs and showcases practical case studies on how investors around the world are tackling these issues.

This conference is complimentary to attend.
