Responsible Investment Forum: Europe 2019

5 - 6 June 2019

ERM will be sponsoring the upcoming Responsible Investment Forum: Europe, as well as speaking on ‘Urgent action required: Climate risks and opportunities portfolio’ and ‘Emerging issues: Managing reputational risk in a changing world’.

In its 10th anniversary, the Responsible Investment Forum: Europe brings together GPs and LPs from more than 30 countries to discuss ESG issues and market trends in alternatives.

Whilst ESG has grown due to LPs demanding managers to adopt stricter ESG principles, GPs are increasingly seeing how implementing ESG can add tangible value. The Responsible Investment Forum: Europe presents the perfect opportunity to discuss the state of the industry with your peers and to be a part of a must-attend event for alternative asset professionals with an interest in ESG and responsible investment.
