Discover the funds that will drive future returns


Investment Week is building on the success of its popular Funds to Watch series in 2020 with the launch of the brand’s first Sustainable Funds to Watch Conference.

The launch comes at a key point in the evolution of sustainable and ESG investing as this important area moves into the mainstream and grabs global headlines. Sustainable and ESG investing is a major focus for the investment industry and is set to gain even more traction in 2020 as asset managers continue to integrate these factors into all their funds and investment processes, as well as launch specialist products if they have not already done so.

However, challenges remain for fund selectors in assessing this part of the market effectively amid criticism of greenwashing, confusion over fund labelling, as well as variations in how groups define E, S & G factors and how they measure these in order to enable meaningful performance comparisons with peers.

Delegates at the Sustainable Funds to Watch conference will hear from specialist keynote speakers and nine fund groups during the event, who will tackle some of these issues and give their unique perspectives on a fast-moving area of the market. Presenters at the conference will include fund providers with long established and new products in this space, as well as asset managers discussing how their business as a whole integrates ESG & sustainability into their wider investment processes.

Our Funds to Watch Conferences show-case up and coming or evolving funds and managers to some of the most influential fund selectors in the UK.


This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
