Over recent years there has been a significant shift in attitudes to social and environmental responsibility and how corporations should act in accordance with this. As such, the idea of sustainable and ethical investing has become a focal point for many funds and fund managers, as investors seek to drive change via their purchasing power. We are lucky enough to have Rob Gardner, Director of Investments at St. James’s Place, available to speak to clients and prospective clients about the potential and importance of responsible investing, how it is being used to curb detrimental practices by corporations and ultimately why we can no longer neglect this as a consideration.
Please join us on the Conservatory Terrace at the Barbican for this unique and important discussion.
