UK & EU Series: Trends in ESG Investing

27 November 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for this discussion on the latest trends in ESG Investing, kindly sponsored by Waverton Investment Management.

2020 has been a turbulent year for people across the world as well as for investment markets. In this session we are going to explore what effect the global pandemic has had on people's views on ESG investing. We will also be discussing which ESG themes currently matter most to investors and how we can demonstrate to our clients that we are taking ESG factors seriously.

We are delighted to be joined by:

James Painter - Director, Concentric, Jersey. James is a co-founder of Concentric and a Director of the business, heading up our strategic partnership with the Managed Portfolio Indices where he is a Director. James was previously a co-founder and CEO of Enhance Group in 2005, following senior roles in trust, investment management and private banking. James remains a shareholder within Enhance Group, and sits on their Board as a Non-Executive Director.

At Enhance James was an early adopter of FinTech to optimise efficient and cost-effective investment reporting services to the fiduciary sector. Through the use of proprietary software, Enhance created a portfolio monitoring process which enabled Trustees to discharge their regulatory responsibilities with regard to portfolio monitoring and drive much higher standards from their investment service providers. Enhance Group has now become a global business, offering investment reporting, investment consultancy and treasury services to corporate trustees, fund managers, charities and private clients across the world, and we are pleased to have them as a strategic partner. James is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment, and has extensive experience within the financial services industry.
