About this talk

A recent study by OnePlanetCapital found that almost a tenth of investors currently hold ESG investments, and the number is expected to double this year alone. As society becomes increasingly concerned by questions of sustainability and equity, investors want to be able to make investment decisions that reflect their convictions and support causes they care about. However, in the absence of any widespread benchmarks or definitions, wealth advisors need to drive communications with investors, delivering education and data to ensure transparency and build trust.

Join the webinar to: - Bridging the knowledge gap: the case for investing in education - Identify your investors’ expectations and deliver value by offering investment opportunities that address their needs - Master ESG data reporting and disclosures to ensure investors understand what they’re investing in Speakers: - Brunno Maradei, Global Head of Responsible Investment, Aegon Asset Management - Mikkel Bates, Regulatory Manager, FEFundinfo - Michael Young, Manager of Education Programs, USSIF Hosted by Georgina Mitchell, Consultant, WellHouse Consulting
