Alpha Challengers are excited to launch the Sharing the Knowledge Series with an event designed to help you understand Responsible Investing and ESG.

Responsible Investment is an approach to managing assets, that sees investors include environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in: their decisions about what to invest in and the role they play as owners and creditors.

Examples of ESG issues:

  • Environmental: Climate change, resource depletion, waste, pollution, deforestation
  • Social: Human rights, modern slavery, child labour, working conditions, employee relations
  • Governance: Bribery and corruption, executive pay, board and firm diversity, political lobbying, tax strategy

We are delighted to welcome the following guest speakers:
