Threading the Needle: Considering EU ESG Requirements
Threading the Needle: Considering EU ESG Requirements in Light of the U.S. Backlash
Dechert invites you to join them on Wednesday, 6 December for a seminar exploring the issues facing managers seeking to operate in line with EU ESG regulation, whilst also taking account of the differing views and approaches to ESG in the U.S.
Funds marketed in the EU must adhere to disclosure and reporting requirements relating to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. In the U.S., private litigants, “red state” attorneys general and other U.S. government officials have increasingly scrutinized ESG-related investment activities. By contrast, certain investors, “blue state” officials and regulators continue to advocate for the inclusion of ESG factors in managers’ investment decision-making and proxy voting practices. It is becoming increasingly difficult for managers operating in both the U.S. and EU markets to navigate the juxtaposition between EU regulations and the varied U.S. perspectives on the role of ESG in asset management. In this seminar, speakers from Dechert’s financial services and litigation practices will discuss how managers can seek to thread the needle between these varied and sometimes conflicting approaches.
This seminar will be followed by drinks and canapés.
