Overview Practical information
Overview

What is it?

This training course offers practical knowledge and provides delegates with guidance on implementing responsible investment related strategies and processes, relevant for both the GP and the LP community.

The course leaders, who are industry experts on responsible investment from the LP, GP and advisory communities and are actively involved in Invest Europe’s Responsible Investment Roundtable, tailor the content of the course on a yearly basis, giving emphasis on practical examples, discussion of case studies and day-to-day challenges, with attention to the specificities of both venture capital and buyout.

Among a number of relevant documents, the training will discuss the recently published by Invest Europe ESG DDQ for Private Equity Investors and their Portfolio Companies.

Why should you attend?

This training course is designed to give you the opportunity to acquire a thorough grounding on integrating responsible investment into your daily investment operations through examples and cases. This knowledge will help you to further develop the responsible investment practices specific to your own organization, as there is no one-size-fits-all responsible investment strategy for PE operations. Furthermore, you will have the possibility to get directly in touch with some of the most knowledgeable industry representatives on the subject and will receive their view on your questions. The breaks, lunch and the networking dinner will provide you with an additional opportunity to exchange views and best practices with your peers.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for Investment Professionals, COOs, CFOs, GCs, IR professionals, fundraising team and ESG officers. It is relevant for GPs as well as LPs seeking to understand the GP investment processes from the ESG perspective.
