Are Responsible Investors able to change the financial system?
Thursday, 27 April 2017 from 16:00 to 18:00 (CEST)
Responsible Business Week 2017: The Prince’s Responsible Business Network, in association with Responsible Investor, warmly invites you to discuss:
Are Responsible Investors able to change the financial system, and what evidence is there that they are making it work for all?
With institutional investors seeking more from investments than ever before, asset managers increasingly see that purpose equals profit, with more investors recognising the returns to be had from sustainable products.
But how well are investors innovating market solutions, as well as working collaboratively to change the system so that it works for investors and planet? How far are these efforts going to create transformative change for the benefit of all? What more is there to be done and where are the barriers today?
Through this forum we will produce a ‘state of the industry’ paper addressing 3 key issues
- Are today’s RI products across all asset classes fit for purpose in our economically and environmentally strained world? Where are the leading edge examples?
- How far it the responsibility of asset managers to introduce products to market, or is it the role of pension funds to create demand? Is pre-competitive collaboration needed to create the right market conditions?
- What can be learnt from corporates and alternative financial institutions innovating sustainable investment solutions??
In this facilitated and open discussion we will hear from players across the institutional investment chain, including pension funds, asset managers and advisers. Aviva Investors’ Steve Waygood will kick off with his views on how some of the big players in the Responsible Investment community are driving change currently. We want to hear your views on best practice, enablers and barriers?
