About this event

In 2020, “ESG” or Sustainable Investing came into its own, often dominating the conversation as billions in investible capital moved into these strategies.

But what does ESG or Sustainable Investing really mean? Is it risk management, fundamental business analysis, a PR strategy, an alpha generator, a moral imperative, a cost-saver, all of the above? How does one navigate the alphabet soup of frameworks and the stew of buzz words? How are investment vehicles being shaped or reshaped to fit the new demands? How are lenders and other financiers responding to the proliferation of new products and ventures claiming some form of ESG strategy? How are these new funds and projects being assessed and their performance measured?

WFF is kicking 2021 off with 2 panels aimed at exploring these issues and others. Additional panels may be added to the series in coming months to address audience concerns and the rapidly evolving landscape. Both panels will provide an opportunity for Q&A.

Panel Two:

Panel 2 will focus on investor expectations and perspectives and the product landscape: private investment, loan products, green/blue/social bonds, equity, and blended capital.
