PRI & Willis Towers Watson: Megatrends report launch

PRI & Willis Towers Watson: Megatrends report launch

The PRI and Willis Towers Watson have been working closely together to outline the key megatrends that are impacting the global economy, financial system and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have engaged with PRI signatories, market participants and other key stakeholders to gauge investor responses and strategies for dealing with current and future outcome volatility caused by the megatrends. 

Using information collated from this outreach – as well as expert commentary and insight from Willis Towers Watson, the PRI, and industry experts – we have developed a new report that outlines a framework for understanding these megatrends. 

Specifically, it examines: 

  • The status of megatrends, potential evolutions and interactions. 
  • The potential impacts on the financial system, capital allocation and environmental and social conditions (including the ability to deliver the SDGs). 
  • The risks and opportunities for investors in terms of asset allocation, portfolio management, integration and active ownership. 

We would therefore like to invite you to join us for the launch of this report at a breakfast briefing, which will provide an overview of the findings and some of the key reports insights.
