Neo-colonialism in responsible investment practice

Tuesday 12 October 2021 | 12:30 - 14:00 | Webinar

The field of responsible investment is arguably most developed in Europe. This leads to much of the accepted thought leadership coming from Europe, and these European views being spread throughout the world.

But what if this European-generated view isn’t the right one? What if the developing markets of the world have entirely different needs to the solutions Europe is giving them? What if these well-meaning approaches are actually hindering developing markets in their quest to become full players in a new low carbon world?

David Hickey, CFA, Portfolio Manager at Lothian Pension Fund, talks to representatives of the CFA Societies of Indonesia, Bangladesh, South Africa and Nigeria to ask: is ESG management just another European colonial power grab? And what can we learn from our valued colleagues on the ground in these developing markets?

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
