Launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment DDQ in hedge funds - Stockholm

Launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment DDQ in hedge funds

The PRI is pleased to invite you to the launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment due diligence questionnaire in hedge funds. 

We have developed this DDQ, in collaboration with the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB), to improve transparency around ESG factors in the decision-making process, reduce the reporting burden, and enhance consistency and comparability of data across the industry.

Join us for an interactive half-day session in Stockholm with leading representatives from the hedge fund industry.

The panels will be moderator by Love Liman; a Bloomberg journalist based in Stockholm, focused on business and financial issues, including fund management.  Before joining Bloomberg, he was a correspondent for Thomson Reuters, covering foreign exchange and fixed income.
