by Detlef Glow

The recent panel discussion at the Thomson Reuters Lipper – Alpha Expert Forum 2017, revealed how ESG has become an even more important part of the European financial industry over the last year. Following this successful Lipper panel, I am happy to have been invited Global Sustain GmbH to moderate a panel discussion on ESG Sustainable Investments & Green Finance Trends at the ESG Investments & Green Finance Forum 2017 in Berlin on November 14, 2017. This is the 2nd annual forum to be held by Global Sustain Group, following the success of last year.
