How is ESG reshaping the world of pensions and investments? event series

Environmental Social Governance (ESG) should be embedded into every organisation’s business purpose and strategy. Your organisation’s ESG rating is critical to attracting investment and in determining who you do business with in future, so it is vitally important that your investors, clients, shareholders and other stakeholders understand your commitment to ensuring resilience, sustainability, data security and fair treatment of your workforce.

Join us for a three-part event series to encourage debate and exchange ideas and perspectives on the practical reality of ESG in the pensions/investment industry. Held in association with the Global Ethical Finance Initiative as part of its Path to COP26 campaign, each session, chaired by a Shepherd and Wedderburn specialist, will feature a panel of leading figures from the pensions and investment sector, who will discuss their experience of ESG, and focus on a different aspect of the pensions and investment landscape.

Tuesday 4 May 2021: Consumer demands and opportunities

Edwin Mustard, a partner from our pensions team, will be joined by Lauren Peacock, Responsible Investment Manager at Scottish Widows, and Tony Burdon, CEO at Make My Money Matter.

In this session we will be examining the practical impact ESG will have on the consumer pensions and savings industry, including:

  • how providers are integrating ESG into their products;
  • how providers can differentiate themselves in a market where everyone is talking about ESG;
  • achieving good ESG outcomes in a world of auto-enrolment and the rise of mass defined benefit pension savings; and
  • the extent of consumer push towards ESG issues and whether the risks of unhappy consumers or litigation are greater if providers do or do not act.
