Responsible investment has reached a tipping point, becoming the benchmark for leading investment practice and in the process redefining the investment landscape.


With billions set to flow into responsible, ethical and impact investments over the coming 3-5 years, attending this year’s event will be essential for those managing money on behalf of clients, members and other beneficiaries. 


So where to from here?


This year’s event will focus on the essential knowledge and expertise you and your organisations need to thrive in a world where members and clients demand a responsible investment approach to their savings, investments and banking.
