EMPEA-FT Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets 2017


The PRI is proud to support its partner EMPEA in the second running of the Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets Summit: Putting Smart Capital to Work to Maximise Impact and Returns.

The Summit will look to the future, examining how evolving investor sentiment will shape investment decisions, driven in part by the rise of the millennial generation and influenced by international agreements such as the Paris Climate Accord and UN SDGs. The agenda offers the opportunity for attendees to join round table discussions, led by current investors, focusing on impact investment sectors, including healthcare, agriculture, education and energy. 

Highlights include:

  • Keynote by Arif Naqvi, Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of the Abraaj Group – How can we take sustainable investing to scale?
  • Keynote by Dr Matthew Burrows, Director of Atlanta Council’s Strategic Foresight Initiative – Long range sustainable planning: assessing risk in Emerging Markets.
  • Research presentation by Professor Elroy Dimson, Professor of Finance at the Cambridge Judge Business School – The case for coordinated engagement.
