Wednesday 25th January 2023
The PFS South Wales regional committee invite you to this 2-part breakfast event:
- Seminar on ‘The Fight Against Greenwashing’
- Adviser Round Table Discussions
Investors’ desire to make a positive difference has driven huge inflows into strategies that make sustainability claims. However, mounting evidence that a number of ‘sustainable’ strategies were not as green as they seemed has galvanised regulators to act. The European Union acted first and will shortly be followed in the UK by the Sustainability Disclosure Requirements. Rather than trusting high-level descriptions of investment approaches by Asset Managers, advisers should be prepared to dig deeper. With this in mind, join Henry Boucher, Head of Investment Strategy where we will help investors sort the green from the greenwashed, providing how you can identify greenwashing in our profession. Sarasin are a market leader in Sustainable and ESG Investing and are one of the top 3 largest charity investment managers in the UK and have been supporting UK IFA’s for over 30 years in this area.

Part 2: Adviser Round Table Discussions
Being a financial adviser can sometimes be a lonely place, particularly if you work on your own or in a small company. Following our CPD seminar, we are trialling an adviser round table discussion. The floor is open for any attendees to discuss the trials and tribulations they are facing and to share best practice ideas.
