About this Event

NEW VENUE/LOCATION NOTICE:

This event has relocated to Joseph and Rosalie Segal Centre (Room 1410-1430 (Main Floor)), SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC.

Pension fund trustees and their investment managers and service providers have a fiduciary obligation to pension beneficiaries to act prudently in their best interests in making investment decisions regarding fund portfolios. Pension funds will potentially lose significant value of their investments if they do not act as prudent investors by recognizing climate change financial risk as well as climate driven investment opportunities. The panel will discuss strategies to meet prudential obligations to undertake careful evaluation of climate change and share examples of investment strategy decisions that are based on a time frame commensurate with the pension plan’s liabilities.

This event is complimentary, however, registration is required.
