Our outlook for SI and engagement themes for 2022

13-01-2022 | Webinar
Higher demand for sustainable investing strategies is set to continue in 2022 as the world works towards net zero emissions. Stricter rules such as the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation will put greater emphasis on whether SI funds are as sustainable as they claim. And society is demanding more action on climate, biodiversity and human rights as we emerge from Covid-19.
