The Big Picture from a Luxembourg as a Financial Centre perspective

Sustainable Finance represents a golden opportunity for the Asset Management sector to use its collective momentum and scale to make transformational impacts on climate, environment and society. However, it is so much more than simply being “compliant”. A philosophical and cultural change across both Investors and Asset Managers must occur and be aligned on the impact objectives. Hear from Andrew McDowell, in conversation with Michael Maldener on how to effect such organisational culture change, the importance of measuring the impact investor money has made and reporting that “story” to them, and the opportunity for Luxembourg to establish its “brand” as the ESG domicile of choice in a world largely aligned on principle but not on practice.


Strategy, agility or a crystal ball - what drives the evolution of the sector, and what will it look like in 5 years time?

A fusion of views from C-Suite Executives of Asset Management Companies and the voice of the investor, with interjections from leading industry figures offering their views on the future evolution of Asset Management.

The panel will consider interventions from various investor groups during the panel session, including a large Dutch pension fund, a large European distributor, and the perspective of investors seeking sustainable finance solutions, each posing a challenge as to what their respective investor group needs from the Asset manager sector in the future.
