Virtual ESG Asset Owners Summit 2020

In Partnership with CFA Society Washington D.C.

Join us to hear from asset owners, asset managers, thought leaders and researchers across the globe leading the charge on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing.

You will hear from 20+ speakers on the goals, challenges, and roadblocks impacting ESG. You will gain new perspectives, develop insight into unique challenges that exist in today’s financial markets, and connect with ESG stakeholders around the world, including the UK, France, and Japan.

The Virtual ESG Asset Owners Summit will occur during the month of May and will be composed of five (5) virtual, interactive webcasts. Each webcast will feature one keynote address from a major industry leader, followed by a multi-speaker panel session. Registration includes all five webcasts in the virtual summit.
