ESG in Private Markets - Session 2: Private Capital Alignment of GPs and LPs
ESG is no longer a mere add-on in a portfolio or investment strategy; for an increasing number of investors in alternatives, a thoughtful approach to ESG issues has become table stakes. As the industry continues to define the role of ESG and develop approaches to measure and analyze the effect of these issues on their portfolios, industry professionals must to continue to educate themselves about the key trends and developments related to ESG across alternative asset classes.

What’s evident is that, while there are innovative developments in the space, there is a general misunderstanding (or worse, misconception) around ESG integration when it comes to private market asset classes. Join CAIA, in partnership with Nuveen, for a thought-provoking webinar series organized exclusively for the benefit of institutional investors across the world. We’ll explore:

1. Public to Private Markets: The Evolution of ESG Data (September 28th, 2021)
2. Private Capital: Alignment of GPs and LPs (October 27th, 2021)
3. Real Assets: Mitigating the Physical and Transitional Risks of Climate Change (November 9th, 2021)
4. Portfolio Construction: Beyond Risk and Return (December 15th, 2021)
5. Measuring Impact (January 20th, 2022)

In the second session, we will discuss how general partners and limited partners can better align themselves around material ESG issues.

NOTE: This is the registration for session 2 only; a different link will be available to register for other sessions.

CAIA designation or affiliation is NOT required to attend any of the sessions.

Oct 27, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
