Responsible Investing Summer Course NN Investment Partners

Friday, July 17, 2020

We have collaborated with our member NN Investment Partners to offer a Responsible Investing Summer Course to the investment professionals.

The lectures presented by leading academics will emphasize on the impact of COVID-19 on the government, corporate and individual behaviour. Even before the corona crisis, investors had been placing increasing emphasis on companies’ social performance. But does responsible investing actually pay off, or do investors have to sacrifice financial returns to achieve social goals? How do you actually assess whether a company’s business and behaviour is sustainable and implement responsible investing in practice? At this event, all these questions will be discussed, with a particular emphasis on what it will mean to be a responsible investor in the post-Covid-19 world.

All lectures are virtual and highly interactive taking place between 29 July and 22 September 2020. The whole programme can be viewed here

Our speakers are all around the world from leading universities and business schools: University of Warwick, Turku School of Economics at the University of Turku, University of Hamburg, London Business School, Yale University, National University of Singapore and more.
