Capitalism Revisited | Responsible Investment

A two-day Event on Responsible Capitalism (September 15-16, 2022)

The conference held in Bocconi University is the second part of a two-day event on Responsible Capitalism, an ECGI initiative launched earlier in 2022.

This two-day event brings together senior academics and thought-leaders in business to discuss a range of current topics.

The first part, titled "Responsible Enterprise",  will bring together academics and practitioners to discuss purpose and family enterprise from a comparative perspective. This first event is hosted by Assonime at Borsa Italiana, Milan (registration link below).

The second day, "Responsible Investment", will feature four academic presentations on responsible investing from leading scholars in economics, finance, law, and other disciplines. The studies will explore topics such as the motivations of responsible investors, the real impact of responsible investing strategies on firms’ ESG policies, ESG disclosure, and investors’ engagement, among others.

It will also feature a panel focused on “ESG engagement in concentrated ownership companies”,  which includes both listed state-owned enterprises and family firms. The panel will explore whether and how investors can influence the ESG conduct of these firms and what the specific challenges are for them to do so.  The panel will include experts from both academia and practice. The afternoon will feature the ECGI General Assembly Meeting, the award of the two Working Paper Prizes and the distinguished 2022 Wallenberg Lecture.
