Event series: Invest in your knowledge

Strong returns and sustainable outcomes –
Europe has the edge

3 September, 11:30 – 14:00 CET, Brussels

During this in-person session with 1 FSMA point experts from Vlerick Business School and Columbia Threadneedle Investments will give you insights into the natural harmony of strong returns and sustainable outcomes and why Europe has the edge.

ESG has come to the forefront of investing, and nowhere more so than in Europe – rightly so given our concerns over the environment and heightened awareness of social and governance issues. No longer should this be seen as an alternative to strong financial returns. Focused ESG research can unearth robust commercial benefits and new and growing sources of exceptional profitability – and Europe has a head start over other areas.
