ESG FUNDAMENTALS

TRAINING FOR HEDGE FUNDS

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

 

There is growing demand from both investors and policy makers that Responsible Investing (RI) be adopted as the new norm for best practice investment management across all asset classes.

 

Hedge Funds are increasingly expected to demonstrate their capabilities to service the growing number of investors who have funds committed to RI. It is therefore essential that investment managers, analysts and those in broader business function roles understand the fundamentals of RI, including the integration of environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) into the investment process, and become confident applying it to their activities.

 

Join us for this half-day course to uncover what RI means, why it is relevant to your core operations and how to go about implementing it. We are a team of seasoned RI practitioners who will demonstrate the fundamentals of RI and ESG integration in an engaging and practical way so that take-aways can be applied straight away. By participating, you will learn to identify material risks, opportunities and action points to ensure the effective implementation of RI in your operations, bringing you into line with current best practice standards.
