This is the second in a series of panel discussions that we are organising with the CSFI around the way that environmental issues are shaping the financial sector. The first covered carbon trading; this looks at the asset management industry - and specifically at how the equity and fixed income markets are responding to the environmental challenge.If this meeting was held two or three years ago, the key question would have been the extent to which asset managers have a right to put environmental considerations ahead of their fiduciary obligation to produce the highest return for their asset owners. However, the debate has moved on. The consensus today is that climate change is so pressing an issue that no manager can afford to ignore it, and the evidence suggests that environmental awareness pays, in that ESG funds tend to outperform those that are sticking with high-carbon legacy assets.The panel includes:
Speaker(s): Leon Kamhi, Executive Director and Head of Responsibility, Hermes Investment ManagementLisa Beauvilain, Managing Director and Head of Sustainability, Impax Asset ManagementWolfgang Kuhn, Director of Investor Engagement, ShareActionMike Wilkins, Managing Director, Sustainable Finance, S&P Global Ratings
