A discussion on our latest report Sustainable investment – navigating the challenges for fund governance

Assets under management in sustainable investment funds have quadrupled in just 3 years, accompanied by a swathe of new regulations and approaches to sustainable investing, with variations in definitions and disclosure requirements. In this rapidly evolving environment, fund board directors are grappling with:

  • An increasing level of regulation and how to mitigate greenwashing risks.
  • A lack of clarity from regulators on their expectations of fund board oversight responsibilities in relation to sustainable investments.
  • Ensuring sufficient expertise in sustainable investing is available for robust fund oversight.

In our digital meeting on Thursday 13 October at 2:30pm BST, we discuss findings from a new report which examines the impact of this rapid evolution on fund boards. Commissioned by the First Sentier MUFG Sustainable Investment Institute in partnership with the FBC, we’ll discuss the challenges faced by fund boards and how to strengthen their expertise and governance to maintain investor confidence.
