Incisive Media is to host its inaugural Sustainable Investment Festival this summer to help readers of Investment Week, Professional Adviser and Professional Pensions navigate this rapidly-evolving area of the market.

Incisive launches Sustainable Investment Festival
Kevin Sinclair: “Providing stand-out coverage of sustainable investing has been a focus for our journalists for some time.”

The Festival will run online from 22-24 June and will include thought-provoking presentations from renowned keynote speakers, innovative breakout events and sessions specifically tailored to meet the information needs of fund selectors, financial advisers, pension consultants, trustees and scheme managers, says Incisive Media.

During this fully interactive event, the keynote speakers, presenters and panellists will be tackling the big debates shaping the future of sustainable investing, identifying opportunities across asset classes, as well as offering guidance on the fast-changing regulatory environment and best practice when integrating ESG into business processes.

Over the three days, speakers will also assess the implications for investment professionals and portfolios of the Net Zero agenda, sharing key lessons from their sister title Business Green’s recent Net Zero Festival.

Meanwhile, there will be a number of sessions aimed at showcasing best-in-class sustainable investment funds and solutions aimed at fund selectors and financial advisers.

The festival will also focus on the institutional pensions market – looking at the latest regulatory requirements for both defined benefit and defined contribution schemes; increasing rules on disclosure, particularly on climate risk; and the growing importance of stewardship in institutional portfolios.

Delegates will be able to participate in a range of interactive sessions during the event including practical workshops, panel debates with peers and unique breakouts, including networking opportunities.

The three-day event will be streamed from a top London studio, hosted by Incisive Media’s experienced editors, with all the content available ‘on demand’ to delegates afterwards, along with easy-to-digest highlights packages. They will also be supporting the festival with original research and analysis to complement the live programme.

Kevin Sinclair, managing director of the Financial Services division at Incisive Media, commented: “I am delighted we are launching our first ever Sustainable Investment Festival this year to meet the demands of our readers across Investment Week, Professional Adviser and Professional Pensions for expert insight and fresh thinking on an area of key importance for their businesses. Providing stand-out coverage of sustainable investing has been a focus for our journalists for some time across our publications and this event will allow us to engage our readers in a new way.”
