21 October 2020 ‘SRI Services & Partners’ annual event registration

April 8th, 2020

In the hope and expectation that some kind of normality will have returned by October I am pleased to say that we are planning our event for this autumn as normal and that our 21 October, London, Barbican  sign up form is now open – via Eventbrite – here.

We are only able to publish a draft agenda at present, however those familiar with what we do will recognise that this year’s format will be broadly similar to last year’s as a result of its overwhelmingly positive feedback…

Full details will be published on our events page nearer the time, but this is what we can say so far:

‘SRI Services & Partners’ Good Money Week 2020 event 

Where: Barbican, London

Date: Wednesday 21 October

Times: 10 am registration, event starts at 10.30, conference ends 5.30, drinks reception til 7 pm

Sign up here

The conference is intended to support and enhance the skills of financial advisers, financial planners and other financial services intermediaries who would like to know more about sustainable, responsible and ethical investment (SRI) and bring this area into their advice and investment planning processes.

Attendees will hear from a wide range of leading fund managers and subject matter experts throughout the day, learning about ‘ESG’ issues, fund options and ways in which to integrate these into business practices. At its heart however is the aim of bringing people together to improve mutual understanding and support the transition towards more sustainable investment strategies.

This event is free for financial services intermediaries to attend as it is paid for by Fund EcoMarket’s fund manager partners.

The event is strictly for financial services professionals only.
