Climate Change, Shareholder Voting and ESG-factor awareness are clearly(!) topics close to our heart. With the recent DWP changes to Occupational Pension Scheme legislation in the UK, and the introduction Europe-wide of the Shareholders Rights Directive II, there’s a lot going on in the stewardship area at the moment.
It seems to us that there’s a perfect storm building – the new ESG-related responsibilities from the UK and European Parliaments are just adding to what is an already formidable wave of ESG information heading towards asset owners. As a result, we think it’s time to don our wet-suits and paddle out into the swell to help institutional investors feel comfortable negotiating the wave.
To that end, Minerva will be hosting a one-day ESG & Stewardship seminar in the Museum of London on Wednesday 25th September 2019. The event is not only fully PMI-accredited but will also feature key note presentations from the asset owner community who will be sharing their experiences of developing compliant and defensible ESG policies.
