Please save the date for the 2nd edition of the Research, Innovation and Stewardship, North America event to be held in New York City.

Following the success of last year’s event, this year we are holding the 2nd edition of the Research, Innovation and Stewardship event in New York.

As responsible investment moves from values-based to value-creating approaches, the industry is experiencing increasing investor demand. Institutional investors, and long term universal owners in particular, are interested in how ESG issues can impact company and investment performance, and influence in aggregate the long-term risk and return profile of investment portfolios.

This year’s agenda will bring panel discussions and experts’ presentations on topics that represent opportunities and key challenges of responsible investing strategies.

A networking event will follow the day’s discussions.
