    Responsible Investor and DVFA Recorded: Aug 19 2019 57 mins
    Reflecting on the EU legislative changes in sustainable finance: How organisations and individuals can master the educational challenge?


    - While the EU's Action Plan for Financing Sustainable Growth and it's Technical Expert Group have made exceptional progress towards creating a financial market infrastructure that is conducive to a truly sustainable financial market, the exceptional amount, ambition and execution of the work have also led to an unprecedented educational challenge in the sustainable finance space


    - Prof. Hoepner, one of only two TEG members appointed in personal capacity, will share his reflections on the significant progress to date as well as the long term ambitions for taxonomy, trajectory & co. and explain how these can contribute to a conflict-free Capitalism


    - He will furthermore contrast Friedman's intransparent definition of risk with Markowitz' transparent one and explain why full risk transparency is crucial to measure and understand the merits of sustainable investing. Prof Hoepner is convinced that any investor practicing full risk transparency and accurate return per unit of risk measurement will deliver superior performance for clients and fully understand Fuerer's credo that "unsustainable investing is non-economic".


    - Finally, Andreas will give some very practical tips how organisations and individuals can master this significant educational challenges, both the challenge resulting from the exceptional recent progress on the area of green finance as well as the challenge originating from decades of intransparent risk definitions and other misunderstandings of standard finance.

  • Peak Passive or Still Early Days?
    Peak Passive or Still Early Days?
    Derek Fulton, CEO, First Trust Global Portfolios Recorded: Jul 25 2019 61 mins
    We often hear debates about whether we have reached peak passive and how much further can the ETF industry grow. First Trust will make the case that ETF growth is still in its early stages and that ETFs are a kind of disruptive technology which will accelerate fundamental change in the investment industry.

    The ETF structure is an innovation in investment fund technology which we believe will become the most widely used vehicle for all types of investment strategy. In fact, actively managed ETFs are already the fastest growing area of the industry in the United States.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the differences and similarities between a UCITS ETF and UCITS OEIC fund
    • Trace the evolution of ETFs from passive market capitalisation index tracking through smart beta to actively managed strategies
    • Understand how investors in the US are using ETFs to build more granular bespoke client investment solutions

    Responsible Investor Sep 5 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor is proud to present a new edition in our sustainable finance webinar series focused on the global implications of the European Commission’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan, with updates on developments in Asia and North America. Coming after the G7 meeting in Biarritz, France at the end of August, this webinar will unpack the implications of the sustainable finance regulatory agenda for global investors.

    As the world grapples with populist politics, worsening economic inequality, and the prospect of climate breakdown, this is a crucial time for sustainable finance policy to reorient global capital markets. Against a backdrop of macroeconomic risks, this unique webinar will consider how sustainable finance policy on three continents could impact the banking and asset management industries.

    With the European Commission leading action on new rules covering investment mandates, sustainability definitions and green finance fiscal policy tools, this webinar will reflect on ‘the HLEG-effect’. Speakers will consider how sustainable finance regulation coming out of Brussels and Beijing could impact investors in North America and other parts of the world.

    Banking on ESG: How will the banking sector adapt in an era of global volatility
    Responsible Investor & MSCI Sep 16 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Sustainable finance and ESG integration are fast becoming a global preoccupation for the banking sector. As ESG reporting shifts from niche to mainstream and begins to have balance sheet implications, investors are raising challenging questions on how ESG performance is assessed, managed, and reported on across core banking business units. From corporate governance and board composition to loan portfolio credit quality, new data is driving a shift in approach to ESG integration and reporting across jurisdictions.

    This unique webinar will dig into the details of how ESG risks and opportunities can have material impacts on bank balance sheets, investor returns and the long-term financial health of the global economy. The discussion will consider key ESG trends in the banking sector from the perspective of reporting banks, investors, and one of the world’s largest investment data analysts. Join us to learn how responsible investment and corporate governance policies are helping to raise professional and ethical banking standards, and how action on ESG themes is evolving in a time of market turbulence.

    Responsible Investor Sep 23 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join us on 23 September at 4pm BST as we explore the topic of ESG integration in manager selection and monitoring. The webinar will feature industry experts from Aon and the San Francisco Employee’s Retirement System (SFERS).

    As the effects of climate change shape our world, investors are coming under increasing pressure to integrate ESG into their processes. For asset owners who rely on external managers, it is vital to be able to understand and monitor the integration process. For those selecting funds on behalf of their clients, it is important to validate how ESG is being incorporated and if it is being done on a consistent basis.

    Responsible Investor and Style Analytics are holding this webinar to discuss real examples of ESG integration, including a review of the key challenges faced and lessons learned from a public pension fund.

    The speakers will also explore how ESG approaches differ between the US and the UK, the tools and practices developed to select and monitor fund managers, and how the industry can look at ESG alongside other traditional factors.

    They will answer live audience questions at the end of the webinar.
