Fineco continues to be very active to expand the PRI at local and national level. Fineco advised the Regional Government of Biscay last year when organizing the Biscay ESG Global Summit for the third time. In order to make people more aware of the importance, we invited Lorenzo Saa in 2017 and we provided PRI the opportunity to organize a full panel (Carmen Nuzzo was the organizer) in 2018 so that he could tell Spanish investors, advisers and asset owners about the PRI initiative and in 2018, more especially about fixed income world.

Fineco was a key adviser to the Regional Government when organising the third edition of the Biscay ESG Global Summit, helping the public institutions create the panels, contacting speakers, etc. Fineco was able to bring the Minister of Ecological Transition to speak about the steps at Spanish and European level for environmental requirements, a key topic for all the economic agents. It was a total success with more than 200 attendees.

In addition to the previous initiatives, Fineco puts a lot of effort in co-organizing the annual Biscay ESG Global Summit in June, where more than 200 attendees go to listen to international experts on climate change, ESG investments, engagement, regulatory issues, auditors and consultants, academic world, etc. It takes a lot of time and effort to bring such amazing speakers since we haven´t seen such a diverse range of speakers and topics all related to RI for so many different angles.
