Ethical Finance Round TableEthical Finance Market Update - Keynote Interviews

Monday 16th December 2019, 4pm – 6pm
Baillie Gifford (Main Office), Calton Square1 Greenside Row, Edinburgh, EH1 3AN


To celebrate the festive period we will be deviating from our normal format by having two keynote interviews with experts providing updates from the investment and banking markets.

As 2019 draws to a close we felt that it was timely to pause to reflect on the evolution of the ethical finance market and consider what lies ahead amid on-going political, economic, social and environmental uncertainty. To do this, Andrew Cave (Head of Governance & Sustainability, Baillie Gifford) and Thom Kenrick (Head of Community Programmes, RBS) will share their reflections. They will be interviewed by GEFI Senior Consultant Gail Hurley who has recently completed 10 years with UNDP in New York as a Senior Advisor – Development Finance.
