The event will bring together delegates from around the world as we continue to facilitate international knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking that focuses on changing the ways in which asset managers are working.

The summit will integrate a series of keynote presentations, fireside chats and panel discussions with industry leaders for an action-packed agenda touching on the most pressing issues such as:

• ESG in 2021
• The current Asset Management landscape
• Sustainable careers in Asset Management

Still a huge challenge for asset managers is to embrace diversity and inclusion as more than just a corporate and social responsibility initiative, and as a core ingredient of a sustainable business model. 63 percent of North American managers have implemented policies and practices to reduce gender bias in their evaluation systems —but the industry as a whole needs a more fundamental shift for reasons both principled and pragmatic.

Also, throughout 2021, ESG is likely to gain momentum as data and analytics are tuned to quantify the myriad approaches and flavours of ESG. More than 50% of investment management respondents in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific indicate that their company is reprioritizing ESG policies, programs, and products as a result of COVID-19.
