Food for thought
Sustainable investments: in search of quality data, materiality and real impact

The future(s) of ESG
Responsible investing has become a major theme for institutional investors worldwide with more than $23 trillion in AUM invested according to ESG. This panel addresses the impact of this trend on the derivatives industry and its role in facilitating the sustainability-driven listed derivatives. What are the drivers behind sustainable investing? How does ESG regulation differ around the world? And what is the next step in ESG investing?

A buy-side perspective: ESG integration in portfolios  
Europe has been at the forefront of responsible investing and now accounts for half of the global assets managed under ESG principles. The massive growth of ESG investing has created demand for sophisticated and diversified index trading concepts. In this panel, we look at ESG from the buy-side perspective. How can ESG strategies be integrated into the portfolios? And, how can a further implementation of ESG strategies in a listed environment increase liquidity and reduce trading costs?

Transitioning from IBOR to Risk Free Rates
Driven by declining liquidity in the unsecured inter-bank lending market, firms are facing a significant amount of planning in the lead up to 2021. The prevailing question really is what a post-Libor world would look like. This panel will provide you with pivotal insights into the key challenges firms face in the lead up and how they are preparing for a post-Libor environment.

It’s all about liquidity
The derivatives trading landscape constantly evolves. However, finding sources of liquidity and deep liquidity pools remains a key aspect within the investment decision process. Building liquid benchmarks can help investors assuring flexibility and certainty of execution. The right combination of market measures combined with a level playing field for liquidity providers can support liquidity. To what extent are liquidity criteria considered during the investment process and what guidelines are taken into account? What are the preferred ways of trading and does it differ depending on a specific asset class?

The global landscape - shaping the financial markets of future
In the global political environment, we see tendencies to return to national markets, although markets are global. This creates challenges as well as opportunities. In this session, the panel discusses the perspective of the sell- and buy-side as well as market infrastructures and regulators. How does the financial market of the future look like? Where are the new hubs and what is their relevance today and in 10 years?
