ETF Global to Sponsor "Summer in the City" Conference July 19-20

: The “Summer in the City” 5th Annual CSR Investing Summit consists of an all-day conference followed by a morning workshop. For this year’s event, speakers and panelists will explore investment risks that go beyond market or systematic risk, including resource risk, geopolitical risk, and regulatory risk. Utilizing a multi-dimensional perspective, participants will examine ways to quantify and defend investments against such risks.

The conference will feature eight panels addressing a diverse range of topics related to CSR investing, including high-conviction investing and ESG, ESG in Latin America and the Caribbean, water as an asset, investing with American values, Carbon emissions’ impact on financial performance, the politics of sustainability, and more.

Georg Kell, Vice Chairman of Arabesque Asset Management and Founding Executive Director of UN Global Compact will be making a special presentation in the afternoon session, “Seventeen Years of ESG: From Concept to Integration.”

Bruno Bertocci, Managing Director at UBS Global Asset Management, will provide an update regarding the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Chaired by Michael Bloomberg, TCFD aims to promulgate voluntary, consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures so that companies may better measure and respond to climate change risks, aligning disclosures with investors’ needs.

The July 20th workshop will consist of three sections. First will be a screening of the documentary film Planetary presented by associate producer Jeffrey Gitterman. Next will be a discussion of climate risk and its meaning for institutional investors, led by the Washington-based think tank Climate Advisers. The final portion will be an overview of ESG — its history, case studies and applications.

When: Conference on Wednesday, July 19th (8:00 AM to 6:30 PM) and Workshop on Thursday, July 20th (8:00 AM to 12:00 PM).

Where: 30th floor of the Thomson Reuters Building at 3 Times Square, New York.

Why: The “Summer in the City” CSR Investing Summit presents a forum for engaging with thought leaders and discussing their points of view on how to define, manage, and measure responsible investing. The conference includes expert practitioners who are plan sponsors, endowments, consultants, academics, non-governmental organizations, the sell side, and media. Attire is informal and networking is encouraged.
