ESG and PE: Opportunities and Challenges in Value Creation

01 Sep 2021 09:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. HKT

As Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives become more integrated into the value-creation cycle, what opportunities and challenges does a focus on ESG present to PE houses in Asia and for those with interests in Asia?

Join us for a webinar where our panel of industry leaders will explore issues including:

  • What are the drivers for ESG in the PE sector?
  • How can a focus on ESG help to raise capital and improve profitability?
  • How will ESG impact investors and fund managers in the future?
  • How can global and regionally based funds implement an ESG-focused investment strategy in Asia?

We are delighted to be joined by high-profile names from the impact investment sector:

  • Kathy Matsui, Former Vice Chair of Goldman Sachs Japan and Founding Partner of MPower Partners, Japan’s first ESG-focused Global VC Fund
  • Megan Starr, Global Head of Impact, The Carlyle Group
  • Sean Kane, Partner and Co-Leader of sustainable investing at McKinsey & Company

The panel will be moderated by Susan Mac Cormac, Global Chair of MoFo’s Energy and Social Enterprise and Impact Investing practices and the event will be hosted by Marcia Ellis, Global Chair of the firm’s PE group.
