    Event Description

    The increasingly acute recognition among institutional investors that traditional portfolio theory does not capture the systemic risks in investment portfolios, coupled with the desire to understand the overall impact of investments, is driving investors to seek strategies based on ESG factors. Our ESG-IQ Forum brings together leading institutional asset owners, asset managers, major investment consultants and private wealth gatekeepers. Our prominent speakers will discuss high-priority investment themes, due diligence, risk management, increased disclosure and engagement strategies being driven by the growth of ESG integration across asset classes.
