Tomorrow starts today.
The world has changed. The fundamental shifts taking place in the global financial system have been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Demand for goods & services has changed, expectations of corporate behaviour has changed, and the concept of shareholder primacy is reducing to make more room for other important stakeholders. At Fidelity, we support these changes and firmly believe that post COVID-19 Sustainable Investing will enter the mainstream.
Product is part of the answer to the challenges faced above, but more critically, investment research must pivot and adapt. Depth of knowledge about company operations, governance, and impact matter as much in the capital allocation process as revenue, margins and cash flows. Investing successfully through cycles requires a new analytical toolkit.
Hear from Jenn-Hui Tan, Global Head of Stewardship and Sustainable Investing and Ned Salter, Head of Equities – Global Research and Asia ex Japan Investment who will explore this new world, what the priorities are in a post-COVID environment and how you can take advantage of these changes.
