Responsible Investing Programme

Following our debate we are proud to deliver our Responsible Investing Programme for investors. Built as part of a European Commission backed initiative, this programme has been developed ‘by investors, for investors’. It aims to help you better understand company value through identifying, analysing and integrating sustainability considerations, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) information into the investment process.

The course is the first of its kind, delivered in-person with your peers and seasoned professionals. It offers an intensive, interactive training experience with six modules over a two-day period and culminates in a case study to put into practice the learning outcomes, together with supplementary reading materials. Core modules include:

  • Managing your responsibilities as an investment professional
  • Responsible investment analysis and corporate valuation
  • Integrating sustainability considerations into the investment process
  • Strategies of stewardship and engagement
  • Managing proxy voting and the accountability chain
