SPS Virtual: Nordic Institutional Investors’: ESG, Impact & Sustainable Investing
October 19, 2021
This conference will explore a range of sustainable/Impactful/ESG compliant investment options, both public and private, looking at how these can be integrated into the investment management processes of Swedish and other Nordic institutional investors. We also aim to consider issues such as the impact of regulatory, political and geopolitical pressures, transparency, fees, benchmarks, reporting, technology and performance measurement as well as investment considerations specific to Nordic investors.

Natural Capital – generating returns through impact
Positioned at the junction between regulation to combat climate change, biodiversity loss and the mega trends driving the investment decisions of tomorrow, natural capital is emerging as an asset class to consider as part of a well‐diversified portfolio. The services that nature provides are increasingly well understood, while remaining significantly under‐valued. We’ll explore example agriculture and forestry projects, an illustrative impact framework and voluntary and compliance carbon markets to showcase the investment opportunity that natural capital can deliver for an ESG and impact aware investment portfolio. .
Portfolio Manager Global Sustainable Equity
Nomura Asset Management
Developments in Sustainable Investing
Senior Investment Manager Clean Energy
Pictet Asset Management
Exploring investment opportunities within Energy Transition
Investments in clean energy are gaining momentum driven by innovation, climate change awareness and falling costs. Investments in the energy transition are not only limited to the production of sustainable energy, but cover a diverse spectrum of industries and sectors as the entire energy system will need to be transformed. We will explore the opportunities the energy transition offers investors.
