SPS Virtual: European Institutional Investors’ Conference
March 4, 2021
This conference provides an opportunity for European Institutional Investors to consider their investment strategies in the current challenging environment. We aim to include discussion of public, private, active and passive asset classes, taking into account global and local regulatory and economic impacts and ESG. We also seek to incorporate discussion of the performance objectives of strategies as well as practical issues such as cost, governance and implementation. (Conducted in English).
The programme will include speakers from both international asset managers as well as the European pension fund industry and will address key investment issues for European pension funds and institutional investors. The full programme will be available shortly but in the meantime we can advise you of one of the speakers and topics:
Vice President & Portfolio Manager
From the margins to the mainstream, ESG factors have become an essential component in modern investment management. Yet the very popularity of common ESG approaches ensure their reduced efficacy in the next 20 years, whether for alpha generation or impact. Today’s ESG risk management emphasis will likely evolve into a focus on the purpose of the corporation itself as investors recognize the need for more proactive approaches and the transformative opportunities of key sustainability challenges. The Covid‐19 crisis has provided a challenge for investors to accept a broader societal role than solely generating income for retirement..
The conference will have 2 sessions and include a networking break in between.
The conference is by invitation only for pension funds and other institutional investors. If you are not already receiving an invitation please contact us. A limited number of Complimentary invitations are usually available to genuine pension fund representatives (executives and trustees) and other approved institutional investors. Furthermore, SPS always reserves the right of admission (free or paid) and our decision is final.
SPS Virtual will be hosted on a dedicated webpage so you won’t need to download any specific software.
Full login and password details will be sent to you after you register.
