There is increasing pressure on pension and sovereign funds to invest and allocate capital towards sustainability. Funds face huge challenges and uncertainty as they begin to focus on transitioning their assets. This roundtable will discuss how pension funds should manage their portfolios and allocate their assets, examining the implication of asset ownership versus divestment of brown assets, the challenges of meeting disclosure requirements as well as how to ensure risk-adjusted return on investment.

Speakers will also consider incentivisation tools for mobilising private financial markets and the role pension funds ultimately play in driving the wider financial sector to transition.
