Where much of the recent discussion surrounding ESG and sustainable investments has focused on the listed equity market, advances in approaches in other asset classes have highlighted that different routes to corporate funding require different approaches to ESG risk management.

For the coming generations of investment managers, understanding these approaches will become increasingly critical in their roles. In this joint event with The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) UK and the University of Edinburgh Business School’s Centre for Business, Climate Change, and Sustainability (B-CCaS) — CFA's David Hickey will chair a panel of experts who will discuss the roles of the bond market, banks, and of real asset investment.

The CFA Society UK is a professional membership body representing 11,000 investment professionals in the UK that promotes the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence in the profession, in order to serve society’s best interest. The B-CCaS aims to be a catalyst for positive social and environmental change in the interaction of climate, business, policy, and society, and runs the MSc in Climate Change Finance and Investment.

This event is being held in association with The Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) and the Chartered Banker Institute (CBI).
