Increasingly pension funds are thinking beyond the scope of responsible investment to consider how impact investment can facilitate a thematic focus on improved outcomes for people, society and the environment. This webinar will consider how such an approach is impacting the investment decisions that pension funds are making.

• How are pension funds shifting focus from traditional asset classes to drive impact?
• How does fiduciary duty intersect with impact, as opposed to ESG? Is impact outside the purview of fiduciary duty?
• What are some of the 'guiding principles' that trustees can follow to pursue an impact investing strategy?
• Which external partners are pensions funds working with to formulate and measure impact investment strategies?
• What impact themes are pensions funds interested in and why?
