10 : 10 AM10:40 AMIncome inequality, a new headwind questioning the investorsRoundtable

Event Details

Rising economic inequalities are a significant global socioeconomic issue, destabilising western political and social systems, as well as distorting economic growth through isolationism and protectionism. While this global concern is capturing more attention from investors due to potential impacts on investment framework, the actions to be taken are not obvious yet. Is there a social risk for investors? Unlike climate risk, the debate is still open and proofs of concept need to be brought to the table. From those who are observing, to others enriching their decision process or even directing assets in order to have an impact, investment behaviours are quite diverse.

Why would an investor need to consider this dimension and what are the respective roles of asset owners and end-savers on this “S” dimension?
