About Seminar 'Sustainable Investing'

Seminar 'Sustainable Investing'

Sustainable investment is now firmly rooted in the portfolios of family offices and foundations. Research shows that almost three quarters of all family offices in Western Europe allocate assets to ESG. Yet this embrace of 'sustainable investing' does not mean that questions, issues or dilemmas no longer exist:

  • How to formulate and implement investment priorities on climate, biodiversity, societal impact, et cetera?
  • As a family office or a foundation, how how far will you take sustainable investing? Should the entire portfolio be ESG-proof?
  • To what extent do you opt for impact investing? Or do you choose to generate impact through other channels (such as charity)?
  • Do you opt for exclusion, ESG-integration or engagement?
  • How to verify and validate the quality of ESG-data?

On Thursday afternoon, 16 November 2023 from 2 to 5.30 pm, several experts addressed these and other topical questions during this educational seminar on 'Sustainable Investing' at Huize Frankendael in Amsterdam, chaired by Huub Ten Holter, Investment Leader at Mercer Netherlands.
