ESG in Fixed Income: Munich - 22nd October 2019
Accelerating Germany’s ESG efforts through fixed income integration
According to a July 2019 Mercer European asset allocation survey, German pension plans have a 45% overall allocation to fixed income; there is plenty of space for ESG integration. Our Munich-based workshop will provide asset owners an opportunity to develop and refine fixed income ESG strategies  through peer-to-peer learning. 

This workshop will help investors navigate the options and approaches available to manage ESG risks, promote best engagement practices and assess responsible fixed income investment options across geographies and sectors.
