Sustainable & Responsible Investment Data: How tech and innovation will reduce risk and improve performance
Sustainability and responsible investing is an industry priority and clients expect an approach that explicitly acknowledges the relevance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. There are many associated opportunities and challenges affecting investment management as we seek to incorporate evolving international standards and client expectations.

- How new domestic and international initiatives and regulations will direct industry behaviour in the UK
- What the data really tells us and how technology will enable consistency and comparative capability
