Day 2 - Wednesday 10 June 2020

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020


2:10 PM Working Group: ESG and Impact Investing - How can you assess the opportunities and risks to strategically capitalize on these investment trends?

Why is ESG important? And, where is it heading? Is it a good investment opportunity or a wild risk?

Join this workshop to deep dive into the complexities of investing on ESG and how CIOs and Asset managers construct their investment strategies, decide which sectors to invest in and how they build a metric system to measure success.

We will debate whether ESG is a good enough investment mechanism or if it brings with it too many risks that are still difficult to mitigate effectively.

Finally, we will have the opportunity to discuss how you capture valuable data and how to make sense of it for informed decisions on ESG investment strategies to diversify your portfolio.
