ESG and positive impact, here to stay or just a fashionable tagline?
This was just one of the topics at Citywire’s Next Generation Forum 2018, held at the swanky Bulgari hotel in Knightsbridge last week, chaired by Wealth Manager’s Eleanor Mahmoud.
Back for its second year, we designed this event exclusively for under 35’s in financial advice and wealth management. It was a pleasure to bring these rising stars together to help guide their investment decisions.
Given that our actions today will affect future generations, it is no wonder the topic of ESG has become such a hotbed of activity.
Alongside this, more than 50 of the brightest young minds joined us to pick the brains of five fund managers. From mid caps to factor investing, they discussed a variety of investment strategies and how they are using them to navigate through the current environment.
Guest speaker Dr Eliza Filby (pictured above) started the morning with a bang, leading the charge with an inspiring talk on engaging with millennial investors and clients. She described how best to adapt to changing technologies and the shifting needs and expectations of inter-generational clients.
After delighting in all the treats the Bulgari has to offer for lunch, the panel debate ‘ESG: 50 Shades of green’ got under way and gave interesting insights into this new wave of investing.
Finishing the day off with a selfie to rival the Oscars, it was a successful event with fantastic delegates and fascinating speakers. See you all next year!
