Presented by

FTSE Russell, an LSEG business

About this talk

There is a growing realization that combining index investing and sustainability engagement is not only possible but can reinforce and mobilize significant global assets under management to enable collaborative engagement. Passive investment has the potential to influence and achieve changes in corporate practices and strategies leading to real world impact through linking engagement to transparent capital re-allocation. Join us to hear more about: • explore the evolution of ESG engagement and passive investing • the role of index providers in marrying passive investing and scalable engagement • the growth in the use of sustainability indexes by asset owners • why shareholder engagement remains important • why historically, passive investing and sustainability engagement were deemed to be at best challenging, at worst incompatible, and what the ‘new’ landscape looks like Confirmed speakers: • Faith Ward, Chief Responsible Investment Officer, Brunel Pension Partnership • David Harris, Global Head of Sustainable Finance, Data & Analytics, LSEG • Sylvain Chateau, Co-Founder, Beyond Ratings / Global Head of SI Product Management, LSEG
