ESG – key trends and balancing opportunity and risk

Hong Kong

There has been an undoubted spike in interest in 'ESG' (including social conscious and impact investing) among investors, regulators and asset managers in Europe and Asia over the past year. Barely a day goes by without press coverage of the same. This interest represents an opportunity for asset managers and we are seeing a proliferation of products badged with an ESG label of some nature or other – but with opportunity, also comes risk.
 
Please join us for this seminar where our global experts will consider questions such as:
 
  • What does 'ESG' investing really mean?
  • How is this being formalised in frameworks that regulated asset managers may need to comply with?
    • What is the direction of travel in Europe?
    • What are we seeing in Asia now and what might we expect to see in the future?
  • What risks and challenges do the legal and compliance teams at regulated asset managers need to watch out for?
