Wednesday webinar at one: Future state of the investment industry: Sustainable finance transformation

Wednesday 06 March 2024 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

Investors increasingly take environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into account in their decisions, particularly in regard to externalities. Much of the business sector and investment industry embraces a multi stakeholder focus with an emphasis on long-term sustainable practices and climate change mitigation.

 Roger Urwin, Head of Investment Content, Willis Towers Watson and Andres Vinelli, Chief Economist, CFA Institute will delve into:

  • What role do central banks and regulatory authorities play in ensuring a sustainable future
  • How asset owner institution can influence the wider industry through stewardship
  • How the investment industry is going to cope with increasing talent demands in the coming years 

This event is one of three that explores CFA Institute’s report, Future State of the Investment Industry. CFA Institute surveyed its members and consulted with experts to see how they expect the investment industry and profession to evolve over the next five to ten years, and what they are doing to prepare for that evolution.

The report identifies four key scenarios:  Diverging WorldsSustainable FinanceDigital Transformation, and The End of Cheap Money. Join us for a webinar with expert speakers who will focus on sustainable finance transformation.
