Seminar Disruptive Innovation, Long Term Investing & ESG
November 8, 9am - 5pm
Today’s interconnected global economy presents risks and opportunities. Relentless leaps in technology disrupt traditional social and economic foundations, heralding an era of rapid change and challenge. The speed and fury of technological progress today is forcing investors to reposition their portfolios. At the same time investors are increasingly focusing on sustainable investment strategies as a way to address ESG-related risks in their portfolios and seek for impact on recently introduced Sustainable Development Goals.
The fast-paced technological change and growing ambition to impact are putting immense pressure on investment decision-making. Our seminar on Disruptive Innovation, Long Term Investing and ESG seeks answers to questions like:
- How to take advantage of disruptive forces like blockchain, big data, internet of things and climate change?
- How do Disruptive Innovation and the rapidly increasing focus on Sustainable Development Goals influence the long term investment policy?
- Can we rely on past experience and theories or do we enter new territories?
- How can long term investors improve their agility in this age of disruption?
Let’s find answers on these fundamental questions inspired by opinion leaders in these fields!
The seminar will be moderated by Jeroen van der Put, board trustee at different pension funds. Key note speakers will include amongst others:
- John Bilton, Managing Director, Head of global multi-asset strategy at JP Morgan Asset Management
- René van de Kieft, former CEO at MN
