Responsible Investing Summer Course NN Investment Partners
We have collaborated with our member NN Investment Partners to offer a global digital Responsible Investing Summer Course to investment professionals.
A total of nine academic scholars from leading universities and business schools all around the world will be giving virtual one-hour lectures on sustainability, behavioural psychology and sustainable finance. Within these subject areas, the lectures will have a particular emphasis on the impact of COVID-19 on the government, corporate and individual behaviour. The Summer Course aims at understanding the COVID-19 impact on the macroeconomic and social levels combined with the shift to where responsible investing becomes the new normal.
There are various takeaways that are desired to be garnered from the lectures in relation to these stakeholders, and some of the questions aiming to be discussed are:
- What policy responses are likely to make certain sectors of society more sustainable?
- How the shift from a shareholder to stakeholder model affects corporate performance and the types of operations it conducts?
- How will consumer behaviour change in the 1.5m society?
All lectures are virtual and highly interactive taking place between 29 July and 22 September 2020. The whole programme and registration can be made at the official NNIP eventpage here.
Our speakers are based in 8 countries 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.

At ABIS we are constantly thinking of new ways to partner with our members and meet up with businesses to join forces in finding solutions in the area of sustainability. Our role in this project was to support NNIP in providing with knowledge capacities. ABIS approached relevant academic lecturers, prepared speakers´ and moderator´ briefings and oversaw the knowledge management support from the implementation to the execution of the event.
