RI London 2020

14:20 - 17:50, 9th June, 133 Houndsditch

As the effects of climate change shape our world, investors are coming under increasing pressure to integrate ESG into their processes. For asset owners who rely on external managers, it is vital to be able to understand and monitor the integration process. For those selecting funds on behalf of their clients, it is important to validate how ESG is being incorporated and if it is being done on a consistent basis.
This ESG in Manager Selection Workshop will feature case studies from asset owners, investment consultants and other institutional manager selectors explaining how they incorporate ESG into their decisions when awarding mandates and monitoring the successful managers across different asset classes.
Who should attend
Institutional marketers, sales, analysts, portfolio managers, product specialists, RFP writers and those involved in the proposal/sales.
The workshop will consist of 6 stand-alone presentations from asset owners and investment consultants, each showcasing a case-study covering ESG integration, manager selection and monitoring, including a review of the key challenges faced and lessons learned.
