Dechert Webinar: ESG Considerations for U.S. Asset Managers
ESG funds have been steady gainers amid recent volatility according to a Wall Street Journal story using Morningstar data. In the first four months of 2020, at least $12.2 billion went into ESG funds, more than double the amount that ESG funds attracted during the same time last year. Industry observers say the numbers indicate staying power for ESG funds. In an upcoming webinar, Dechert lawyers will discuss how ESG awareness is becoming a priority for issuers, investors, asset managers and, increasingly, regulators. Dechert partners will discuss current U.S. and EU developments in ESG impacting on U.S. asset managers, including regulatory approaches, including EU regulation, SEC activity and ERISA guidance; investor expectations; the practical impact of these developments on U.S. asset managers. The webinar will take place on Tuesday May 19, 2020 from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. EDT. Registration is available here.
