This event builds on our 16 November round table (see the video to the right for our speaker introductions from this event) where we considered what AFMs should be doing about Responsible Investment today, extending the discussion into how AFMs can get into the front-foot to be ready for the future.
We continue to see scrutiny of some firms investment offering and the risks of ‘greenwashing’, including the FCA’s 19 July Dear AFM Chair letter (‘Authorised ESG & Sustainable Investment Funds: improving quality and clarity) which highlighted their expectations of improved standards in the design of ESG fund offerings.
The event will provide a forum to consider questions including:
– What are the key guiding principles which should be considered when designing ESG funds?
– What is the role of the AFM vs. the manufacturing investment manager in ensuring that these principles are robustly considered in the design of funds?
Please note that the date and time of this event is tbc and interested attendees will be notified when it is finalised.
