Research & Innovation in Responsible Investment Event

Please join us for our Research & Innovation event in Paris, co-organised by the PRI and the Forum pour l’Investissement Responsable (FIR), which will provide an overview of the latest research on responsible investment strategy.

As responsible investment moves from values-based to value-creating approaches, the industry is experiencing increasing investor demand. As such it is important to keep up with the latest research on ESG issues, many of which will be presented during the event.
