Investment – how to do it right, how to maximise our return on investment and how to do it legally are topics discussed on a daily basis in the media, the corporate world and in our homes. The German Australian Business Council, in conjunction with First State Investments is offering our Members and Friends the opportunity to attend a presentation by Will Oulton, Global Head of Responsible Investment for First State Investments. Will is also the President of The European Sustainable Investment Forum (EUROSIF) and has over 20 years’ experience in the investment field.
At First State, Responsible Investment, or “sensible investment” as Will prefers to call it, hinges on three pillars. The first of these is quality, with the absolute belief that unless environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are fully integrated and considered, the quality of one’s investment process may prove suboptimal. Will will look broadly at trends and advances made in the field of Responsible Investment, especially in the cases of Australia and Germany, as well as where there is still room for improvement.
