Impactful events

Over the course of two days, OMFIF’s Economic and Monetary Policy Institute and Sustainable Policy Institute will convene central bank reserve managers, public pension funds, sovereign funds, asset managers, banks and policy-makers to explore investment strategies and the latest in sustainable finance. Day one will focus on the uncertain macroeconomic environment and the investment implications for reserve managers and global public funds in an off-the-record, high-level seminar.

Day two will see the return of the SPI’s annual summit, this year delving into transition finance and how to move the trillions of capital required to decarbonise. With a focus on the role of asset owners, the summit will explore opportunities and growth areas for the financial sector as we transition to a new age, as well as the challenges, risks, and frameworks required.
