Responsible Investment Forum, 05-06/06/2019, London, UK
In its 10th anniversary, the longest running Private Equity meeting focused on bringing together GPs and LPs to discuss ESG issues and market trends in alternatives will return in June. Attracting over 250 delegates from more than 30 countries, this event is the largest globally focused on ESG issues within private equity.
Whilst ESG has grown due to LPs demanding managers to adopt stricter ESG principles, GPs are increasingly seeing how implementing ESG can add tangible value. This Forum presents the perfect opportunity to discuss the state of the industry with peers and to be a part of a must-attend event for alternative asset professionals with an interest in ESG and responsible investment.
Keynote speech from David Blumer of Blackrock explaining why the world’s largest asset manager is committed to ESG. New kids on the block discussing what the rise of impact investing means for private equity. Substantial variety of topics including the rise of governance, utilising data, human capital, tax, SASB standards, regulatory updates and much more. ESG value creation case studies to learn from those involved in these successful deals. Workshop sessions focused on realistic climate risk strategy for Private Equity & SDG implementation to give you practical takeaways to take back to the office.
David J. Blumer, Senior Managing Director and Global Head, BlackRock Alternative Investor
“Over the last decade we have seen growing recognition among investors that a company’s management of environmental, social, and governance matters can be a key indicator of its ability to deliver long term sustainable growth and investor returns. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to contribute to the conversation around how ESG can help create long-term value for private equity investors. As a fiduciary to our clients, BlackRock seeks to incorporate material ESG factors into our investment process, which can help us better assess investment risks and opportunities.”
