SIFI: the future of investing or too good to be true?

Presented by

Zarina Nasib, LSEG - Andrew Bostock, LSEG - Lee Clements, LSEG

About this talk

Join us to discuss the evolving multi-asset sustainable investment and fixed income (“SIFI”) landscape and the challenges of developing SIFI solutions that can meet investor needs. Implementing SIFI solutions can be challenging given the range of sub-asset classes, the complexities of different types of bonds or investing approaches and an evolving understanding of the materiality of different SI issues. Outside of green bonds, fixed income has traditionally been a laggard in adopting sustainable investing approaches compared to listed equities. However, this is changing rapidly and the SIFI market is growing quickly as investors understanding of the impact of ESG and climate issues on fixed income holdings is increasing, new sustainable fixed income products are launched and regulators are scrutinising sustainability risks and claims. Join us to hear more about: • Growth in sustainable investment continues at pace with new regulations, investor initiatives and products • Why fixed income investors need to consider SI • The state of market for sustainable fixed income products • The challenges of creating SI solutions for fixed income • How are clients adopting SIFI as part of their broader investment portfolio Confirmed speakers: • Lee Clements, Head of Sustainable Investment Solutions, FTSE Russell • Zarina Nasib, Product Manager, Sustainable Investment, EMEA, FTSE Russell • Andrew Bostock, Manager, Fixed Income and Multi Asset Product Management, EMEA, LSEG
