“Covid-19 highlighted the importance of sustainability and accelerated the ESG agenda for business operations and investment decisions. Simultaneously, trustees must consider financially material factors when deciding which investments are in the best interests of beneficiaries.

“How does integrating ESG into investment policies and practices impact fiduciary duties? Are trustees at risk of a breach if they consider material ESG factors in their decision making – what risks exist if they don’t?

“Join our speakers to explore these timely and topical questions and learn practical steps trustees can take to make the best investment decisions while complying with their fiduciary responsibilities.”
