    Ian Lance and Nick Purves, Portfolio Managers, RWC Equity Income Recorded: Jun 24 2019 37 mins
    The UK equity market is currently at its biggest ever discount versus the MSCI World Index whilst value as a style hasn’t been this cheap versus growth for almost twenty years.

    Below are some of the questions they will address:

    - ‘What will be the catalyst for value to start performing again?’

    - ‘Does technologic disruption mean that value investing is dead?’

    - ‘Does this remind you of 1999 – why might this time be different?’

    - ‘When should I switch from quality in to value?’

    Responsible Investor Recorded: Jun 17 2019 61 mins
    Low-carbon and multifactor investing have registered rapid growth in recent years but their combination in a single strategy represents a challenge as popular factors tilt portfolios towards carbon-related assets and carbon-intensive activities.

    High yield: dealing with dispersion
    Tom Ross & Seth Meyer Jun 26 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Economic data has been mixed of late, leading to a dovish rethink on central bank policy, contributing to lower yields on government bonds. Yields on high yield bonds are, therefore, looking even more attractive but with the corporate outlook less certain, investors are becoming more discerning. We anticipate greater dispersion of bond returns as the market places renewed focus on fundamentals and scepticism towards weaker balance sheets. In this webcast Seth Meyer and Tom Ross, managers of high yield strategies at Janus Henderson Investors, look at some of the forces driving the high yield market globally and how to navigate these challenging markets.

A coherent, consistent practice of high-quality impact measurement and management must be implemented at the core of all organizations seeking to understand and improve their effects on people and planet. Effective measurement and management of impact data is essential if investors are to know whether they are actually achieving the impact they seek. The Theory of Change framework streamlines the processes for investors to translate their impact intentions into real impact results.

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of central bank action on climate targets? Join us to find out.

    Following the G20 Osaka Summit, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy across G20 member states could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets committed to in the Paris Agreement.

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many G20 central banks are moving faster than the investment community. This webinar is a chance for the global investment community to better understand what’s in store and to discuss investor responses to the greening of central bank balance sheets.

    Driving Today’s Financial System for the Resilient Climate of Tomorrow

    Launch of the UNEP FI / GCA paper on adaptation finance.

    Failure to adapt to climate change is one of the greatest risks to global economic growth and social stability. The Global Commission on Adaptation (GCA) was launched in October 2018 to accelerate adaptation action and support. At September’s UN Climate Summit in New York, Ban-Ki Moon, Bill Gates and Kristalina Georgieva will present the recommendations of the GCA's initial flagship report, which will make the case for prioritising climate change adaptation from the local to the global level. The UNEP Finance Initiative provided key inputs to the finance chapter of this report through a paper on adaptation finance, authored by Stacy Swann and Alan Miller of Climate Finance Advisors. Today, UNEP FI will launch the paper, which identifies barriers to increased financing for adaptation and presents six clear recommendations for the finance sector, including climate risk management, standards for data and metrics, capacity building, unlocking investment opportunities and delivering adaptation-related policies
