Virtual IBA Asset Management and Investment Funds conference

When 08 to 10.03.2021
Where Webinar

We sponsored the Asset Management and Investment Funds Conference organised by the IBA (International Bar Association) on 8-10 March. The Asset Management and Investment Funds Committee within the IBA provides a convenient forum for its members to consider current developments in the global investment funds industry, including both regulatory and product development.

On 8 March partner Gast Juncker participated in a panel discussion entitled “ESG engagement: how can asset managers best deliver value to pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and other institutional investors?”

Topics included:

  • What are institutional investors now expecting from asset managers on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) front?
  • How is sustainable finance addressing the fiduciary duty and the management/mitigation of ESG risks?
  • Who are the main drivers of sustainable finance – investors or policy makers?
  • What are the main barriers to ESG adoption and what can an asset manager do to overcome these?
  • Cultural aspects – a must or a nice to have: perspectives from Asia, the European Union and United States
