Stewardship in the 2020s

Tuesday 11 May 2021 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This webinar has been organised by CFA UK's ESG working group

Stewardship is the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries, leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

Following reforms to the UK Stewardship Code in 2020, the outcomes from stewardship activities and effectiveness are becoming increasingly scrutinised by market participants.

In this webinar, we invite Leon Kamhi, Head of Responsibility at Federated Hermes International, to discuss the following:

  • The purpose of investment and the role of stewardship in an investment firm
  • The what and the how of effective stewardship
  • This changing market landscape and to horizon scan future developments

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


Registration: 16:55

Event: 17:00 - 18:00

CPD points: 1.00
