Over 40 Italy-based fund selector delegates have gathered at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan this morning to look at investment themes and market trends at InvestmentEurope's Thematic Milan Forum.
The line-up includes six fund managers from the five following asset management groups: Eurizon, Principal Global Investors, Natixis Investment Managers, Mirabaud Asset Management and Artisan Partners.
The event,supported by the CFA Society Italy as its educational partner, will also feature a panel session addressing the challenges of selecting and assessing sustainable and responsible investment strategies.
Panel: "ESG: One size fits all?"
Environmental, social and governance factors have become important considerations in the investment policies of all responsible asset owners.
In the context of the growing investor's shift towards ESG investment, leading Italian selectors provide our audience with their thoughts and first-hand experience regarding responsible trends.
