FSDC Webinar – When Family Office Meets ESG

Via Zoom
29 July 2020

Following the release of its research papers on Family Office and ESG, the FSDC held a webinar on these two related topics, which drew positive response.


Panel Discussion on Family Office: As family offices are growing in both number and influence, financial centres around the globe are striving to improve their attractiveness as a home to these rising asset owners. The FSDC has invited market practitioners to share what they see as Hong Kong’s value proposition as a family office hub in Asia, and what more can be done to create an even more friendly operating environment and ecosystem for family offices.


Panel Discussion on ESG: As companies are pondering on the next step forward in their ESG integration journey, the panel will discuss how different developments in areas – including public policies, investor demand, as well as ESG requirements and principles – can be better transformed into practice, thus forming a more solid ground for why companies and their boards should take ESG seriously.
