In the long term, the most successful companies will be those that achieve the right balance between their social, environmental, governance and financial performance. Learn how to invest ethically, become more sustainable and subsequently more successful.

What is the place for a socially responsible investment as part of a 21st Century Portfolio?
The market for socially responsible investing (SRI) has grown tremendously over the past few years and estimates suggest that the global market is worth €60bn. The Fry Group has been assisting clients in SRI fund selection including funds managed by Triodos Investment Management.
As an experienced Global Impact Investor, Triodos Investment Management will explain how it screens companies for inclusion within the Triodos investment universe using a number of sustainability criteria while entering into an active dialogue and engagement with these companies.
The Fry Group will be joined by Rosl Veltmeijer, Head of Research and Christian Stiernon, Investor Relationship Manager at Triodos Investment Management for the Belgium market.
