For global finance to drive positive change, we need to connect people and ideas.

The Ethical Finance Summit has a history of driving action by bringing together a global coalition across financial services. Since 2015, we have uniquely convened stakeholders from all parts of the financial system, including banking, asset management, asset owners, regulation and more at our flagship annual summit.

Next Summit: Ethical Finance 2021, 8th – 10th June


Held between Tuesday 8th – Thursday 10th June 2021, the theme for Ethical Finance 2021 is “Financing a Sustainable Future: Climate and Beyond”. As well as looking at macroeconomic issues impacting global markets, we will have specific sessions on topics including the SDGs, climate, nature, the ‘S’ in ESG and leadership. In line with our focus on global inclusion we will have dedicated sessions curated with regional stakeholders bringing in views from Africa, Australasia, South Asia, South East Asia and Latin America.
