NewAlpha dedicated the 2018 edition of its annual conference, the Emerging Manager Day, to the theme of Impact Investing. The conference brought together more than 600 participants (institutional investors, fund pickers, asset managers, FinTech start-ups and professional wealth managers) and more than 150 asset managers were represented. Round tables focused on ESG issues (How to reconcile social impact and performance? Environment: how to innovate?) and provided industry players an opportunity to apprehend coming RI-related evolution in the industry.
For the next edition of the conference in 2019, NewAlpha will continue dedicating part of the day to discussing ESG and responsible investment.
