Keynote speaker announced for 21 October SRI Services and Partners event

September 2nd, 2020

SRI Services and Partners annual ‘Good Money Week’ ‘virtual’ event – 21 October 2020

I am delighted to announce that the FCA’s Director of Strategy, Richard Monks, has agreed to give the keynote address as this year’s SRI Services and Partners Good Money Week event.

Sign up to the ‘SRI Services and Partners’ 21 October 2020 event here

Richard’s session will bring to life the growing importance of investments that focus on sustainability, climate change and ESG for retail financial services professionals.

His session will be preceded by UKSIF talking about ‘The Road to COP26’ and followed by four fund manager panel discussions on highly topical ESG and sustainable investment issues (see below).

The final panel session will focus on new launches, with contributions from our friends at Make My Money Matter and PIMFA – with SRI Services talking about how you can become a ‘Dialshifter’.

The day will end with ‘breakout chat rooms’ that will allow participants to interact more freely with our speakers.

This event, like our fund database and App, is free to attend thanks to the support of our fund manager partners.
