As awareness of sustainable issues grow, there’s an ongoing debate as to how to assess and measure an investment’s social and environmental impact. Furthermore, it’s challenging to measure, monitor and assess whether best-in-class asset managers really are investing sustainably and in line with their mandate.
With the growing conversation around sustainability and alignment of mission and capital, we believe that asset owners need to be prepared for more detailed discussions about these issues going forward.
Join us at our breakfast seminar on Wednesday 21st June where we will be joined by Jim Roth, Founder and Managing Partner at Zamo Capital, and member of the Investment Committee of the Edinburgh University Endowment to explore the broad issues, the experiences of other not-for-profit investors and how we assess how managers integrate ESG into their strategies.
Time: 8:30 - 10:30 AM BST
Venue: Marsh McLennan, Tower Place East, Lower Thames Street, London, ECR 5BU
