Agenda

8:30am – 9:00am Registration and Coffee
9:00am – 9:05am Opening Comments
9:05am – 9:25am Keynote industry address
9:25am – 10:10am Panel 1: How are private banks preparing for ESG to move into the mainstream?
What exactly is an ESG strategy and how strong is Asian client demand? What has worked in client education and what more needs to be done? How have private banks mobilised RMs, ICs and other specialists to respond to client demand? Are standalone ESG products still a viable offering, or does ESG now have to be a fully integrated strategy in the product suite, whilst sitting comfortably alongside sustainable investing (SI) and philanthropy capabilities? How important is Next-Gen engagement in ESG investment decisions?

Conversation catalysts:
Eugenia Koh, Head, Sustainable/Impact Investing & Engagement Strategy, Standard Chartered
Kanol Pal, Senior Advisor, Responsible Investments, BNP Paribas Wealth Management
10:10am – 10:25am Product Presentations
12:05pm – 12:45pm Panel 2: ESG adoption and integration
How is the momentum behind ESG being successfully inculcated into product and service offerings from the private banks? From green bonds to green cities, what products are leading the way for clients and asset owners alike? How have private banks had to change structurally to evaluate the merits of ESG products given the lack of track record and reporting standards? Where have early ESG investors seen the best returns to date and strongest client demand?

Conversation catalysts:
Juan Aronna, Head of Investment and Products, RBC Wealth Management
Marc Lansonneur, Head of Managed Solutions, Balance Sheet Products and Investment Governance, DBS Wealth Management
12:45pm – 2:00pm Networking Luncheon
