29– 30 June 2013

We aim to be a part of this process in the ESG finance world by creating a forum for inspiring ideas to be communicated and debated amongst like-minded people: the ESG Finance Lab.

The ESG Finance Lab aims to offer ‘Inspiring Presentations for Innovative People’. Many excellent speakers will be presenting original ideas and analyses to get the creative mind-juices flowing around the sustainable finance theme and collaboratively create true ESG thought leadership. The high density of passionate and creative minds makes this summer weekend in St Andrews a uniquely exciting experience

ESG Analytics for Financial Professionals

1 – 3 July 2013                                                        

Attendance Fee: £2,250

This three-day programme is aimed at finance professionals that need to increase their knowledge about ESG developments among institutional investors and to better understand risk and return issues through the consideration of ESG factors in investment processes. While many finance professionals are used to integrating standard accounting factors into investment, they are less sure about approaches to integrating largely ‘intangible’ ESG factors. Research, however, has shown that investment firms create lasting shareholder value with ESG factors by developing an in-depth expertise in the area of ESG investment.

The Finance Week is jointly organised by Responsible Investor and the Centre for Responsible Banking and Finance, University of St. Andrew’s.  To register, please email events@responsible-investor.com
