The only ESG focused summit for hedge fund leaders looking to enhance their ESG practices
The pressure from investors on firms to demonstrate a serious commitment to ESG is mounting, even more so recently in the wake of the latest IPCC report; indeed, the UK government is now working towards reducing carbon emissions in 2030 by at least 68%. This goal, together with the societal movement towards greater diversity and inclusion in the workplace, means that the adoption of ESG initiatives has never been more imperative.
Funds must be proactive rather than reactive in order to ensure they stay ahead of the curve when it comes to investor appetite. Therefore, HFM is creating a space for European hedge fund leaders to come together to discuss, share and debate the best ways to integrate ESG both into the investment process and on a corporate level.
The only European ESG focused Summit for the hedge fund sector…
We are delighted to be launching the first ever HFM European ESG Summit on 1 December 2021, which will deliver cutting-edge research and expertise on all areas of ESG, providing your firm with the knowledge and guidance to effectively plan your ESG strategy.
The Summit content has been shaped by the industry, focusing on specific areas of ESG as well as regulatory updates and government initiatives. From how to champion ESG within alternative investments and deep-diving into combatting climate change, to how funds can demonstrate a strong ESG commitment to investors, we will explore all the things most crucial in the industry as ESG continues to grow.
The event will host a range of session formats, including presentations, panels and intimate roundtables. We are delighted that the Summit will be taking place in person at the Barbican, which has a range of social and sustainable initiatives and commitments, including championing a huge reduction in the use of single-use plastics, the use of 100% renewable energy and free electric vehicle charging points around site.
The Summit will provide the opportunity to catch up with friends and peers from across the industry face to face. There will be a range of networking sessions on offer, from coffee breaks to a drinks reception.
Prior to the event, delegates will have access to the online Community, enabling them to see who else is attending and send messages.
The Summit has been designed to focus on the most pivotal ESG topics for hedge funds right now.
Managers will have the opportunity to listen to a range of panel discussions, debates and presentations from global industry heavyweights and external experts.
In addition to the main sessions, there will be a series of Roundtables to choose from, in which managers will be able to share and debate their ESG strategies and initiatives, and deep dive into some more specific issues.
These small, informal sessions will enable you to learn from your peers as well as hear from experts offering free advice.
