Whose Money Is It Anyway?

Wednesday October 25, 11:00 am-12:00 pm

There is tremendous focus today on sustainable and impact investing and on the firms developing the analytics and making the investment decisions. But the real drivers behind the move toward more sustainable investing are the “asset owners”—those who actually own the money. Pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, and endowments are the owners of the vast majority of the world’s money. Therefore, these groups have become the hidden sustainability leaders. Participants in this session will get a deeper look into the quiet role these asset owners play, and how they can drive the sustainability agenda.
