When: December 5-6, 2018
Where: New York
As the world trade system grapples with existential threats and investors respond to turbulent politics, 2018 is a key year for responsible investment in North America. Against a backdrop of heightened political risk and growing social discord, investors must build resilient portfolios that address major ructions in society, technology and the economy. The fight for the future of shareholder rights and proxy access is in full swing. Machine learning, AI, data privacy and trends in automated manufacturing must all be considered. The physical risks from climate change and the transformation of the energy system are testing the adaptability of the world’s largest energy companies.
Engaged investors are at the heart of this transformation and are also showing new leadership on human capital development. The role of investors in driving long-term value creation and social stability has never been more important.
RI Americas provides a unique opportunity to learn, share and debate on responsible investment issues with 500+ investment professionals from across the globe. Engage with North America’s largest investors on key themes affecting local markets and the rest of the world. Thought-leaders from across the institutional investment sector as well as academic researchers and scientists will come together to debate key issues.
This year, we are stepping up another gear in terms of the quality of content and speakers, the depth and rigour with which topics will be addressed, and the ‘challenge’ we are posing ourselves for the event: to address, answer and ‘problem solve’ real sustainable finance questions with a view to driving change and action.
This year’s 10th annual New York conference is the place to be for those that are serious about responsible investment and sustainable finance.
