Join the Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI) along with Jon Duncan and Gontse Tsatsi from Old Mutual for an hour long webinar which is scheduled to take place on the 19th of October 2021 at 10h30.

In the first quarter of 2021, responsible investment funds attracted 17% more assets and touched almost USD2 trillion, achieving a fourth consecutive quarter of worldwide record inflows. The 2021 Financial Adviser Survey found that 73% of financial advisers report that their clients are more interested in Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) investing, resulting in two thirds investing their clients’ money in ESG solutions. 

In this talk we will touch on global trends, the relevance of Responsible Investing(RI) to the modern day financial planner and the future of financial services , the South African industry’s response and how RI and ESG investing can assist a planner in future proofing his/her practice.
