Overview

With the growing recognition that the financial and the social or environmental returns of an investment are not necessarily incompatible, responsible investing is steadily gaining momentum.

On 7 February 2018, ALFI will have the pleasure to welcome Mr. Don Gerritsen, Benelux Head of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). PRI is the leading network for investors demonstrating their commitment to responsible ownership and long-term, sustainable returns. At an exclusive ALFI member event, Don Gerritsen will show you how versatile responsible investment opportunities throughout the investment chain can be.

The seminar will cover three main topics:

  • What is responsible investing?
  • What is increasingly driving responsible investing?
  • How can investors – and asset managers – practice responsible investing?

About PRI:
In early 2005, the then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan invited a group of the world’s largest institutional investors to join a process to develop the Principles for Responsible Investment. A 20-person investor group drawn from institutions in 12 countries was supported by a 70-person group of experts from the investment industry, intergovernmental organisations and civil society. The Principles were launched in April 2006 at the New York Stock Exchange. Since then the number of signatories has grown from 100 to over 1,800. (www.unpri.org)

This seminar is reserved to ALFI members and participation is free of charge.
