Professional Pensions is holding a webinar on investing for the transition to net-zero on Thursday (11 February) at 11am.
The webinar comes as a number of major pension schemes are now openly targeting a net-zero investment strategy as they face increasing government, regulatory, and member demand to manage the financial risks associated with climate change.
The panel - which includes BT Pension Scheme chief executive Morten Nillson, Willis Towers Watson manager research director Amandeep Shihn, and Columbia Threadneedle Investments portfolio manager Pauline Grange - will discuss this shift to net-zero, ask how best to manage the transition and look at how schemes can achieve good returns while reorganising their portfolio.
They will also discuss some of the challenges faced as part of the transition and ask how they can be overcome.
