WASHINGTON, DC, February 08, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ —
• US SIF, the voice of sustainable investment in the US, will hold its Forum 2024 in Chicago on June 24-26.
• The event will bring together global institutional investors, money managers, professional service providers and will host a “Financial Advisor Day” for the first time.
• Forum will present the sustainable investment industry’s prestigious Joan Bavaria Award to an impactful leader working to transform the capital markets.
The Forum is set to be the largest gathering of leaders from the sustainable investing community in the US and beyond, and will represent a chance for the investment community to discuss the continued growth of the $8.4 trillion of total US-domiciled assets under management using sustainable investing strategies. As well as sharing best practices, providing insights from developments on public policy, and exploring emerging trends, the Forum will be a unique opportunity to network with the top leaders in sustainable investment.
Sustainable investment has become a mainstream discipline considered by investors on Wall Street and “main street” alike, and a new addition to this year’s conference will be an “Advisor Day” (June 25). This will feature panels, speakers and events tailored to the growing number of financial advisors seeking to help individual US investors understand how consideration of ESG criteria can help unlock value and achieve long-term returns.
For the first time ever, the Joan Bavaria Award will also be presented at the US SIF FORUM 2024. This award, named after US SIF co-founder Joan Bavaria, honors sustainability champions from around the globe.
“Sustainable investing in the US goes into 2024 in good health and the US SIF Forum in Chicago will be an exciting opportunity for the industry to gather under one roof,” said Maria Lettini, CEO of US SIF. “From Wall Street to main street, we’re delighted to bring investors together to discuss the many financial opportunities and material risks that diverse sustainable investment approaches can help manage in our rapidly changing world. New additions to this year’s conference, such as our Financial Advisor Day and the hosting of the Joan Bavaria Award, will add to an interesting and forward-looking agenda that will spark discussion, connect ESG leaders and focus on financial fundamentals rather than political posturing.”
