Business Life After the Virus: Investing in Society

by .

We are looking forward to hosting the eighth Jericho Conversation on Business Life After the Virus: Investing in Society. It’s on Friday 5 June, 12:30pm – 1:45pm (London).

With so much talk about Building Back Better (and Greener), what in the Investment sector and capital markets needs to change? What shifts do Asset Managers and Asset Owners need to take, to make this real? Will they escape the clichés and confines of (ESG) compliance?

John Kay, economist, author and fellow of St. John’s College, Oxford will kick us off. The panel includes Catherine Howarth, CEO, Share Action; Leon Kamhi, Executive Director, Head of Responsibility, Federated Hermes; and Lord Maurice Glasman, Labour peer, Common Good campaigner, originator of the “Blue Labour” movement.
