DELANO LIVE CHAT
Delano Live Chat: Why ‘green’ and ‘good’ funds are growing
Sustainable and responsible investment funds are a relatively small but flourishing part of the financial sector.
And the category is promising. Investors placed €54.6bn in European sustainable funds during the second quarter of 2020, up from €26bn the previous quarter, according to the research firm Morningstar .
Separately, Morningstar found that European sustainable funds outperformed their peers over the 10 years to 2019. Why? Denise Voss , chair of Luxflag , an outfit that checks fund managers’ sustainable and responsible investing claims, will address that question during this Delano Live Chat.
Voss will demystify “ ESG ”, discuss the new EU sustainable finance taxonomy, and explain why the sector is becoming increasingly important to the Luxembourg fund industry. Plus she will provide a preview of Luxflag’s upcoming conference.
In addition to chairing Luxflag, Voss is an independent board director. She previously chaired the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry and served as a conducting officer for Franklin Templeton in Luxembourg.
Voss will speak with Delano’s Aaron Grunwald and also take audience questions.
