15th Annual The Rights and Responsibilities of Institutional Investors

Mar 5th 2020

The Promise of Active Engagement in an Era of Profound Change

The 15th Annual Rights & Responsibilities of Institutional Investors will again be held in Amsterdam and co-hosted by Institutional Investor and Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check LLP. Many of the most pressing issues for engaged investors and active shareholders covered in this single day agenda will consider the ways that senior management, including investment, legal and compliance officers from European and, increasingly, North American, Middle Eastern, and Asian public pension, insurance funds and mutual fund companies, are paving a path forward to meet their fiduciary obligations and engagement goals.

Al Gore

Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check and Institutional Investor are pleased to welcome back Former Vice President Al Gore as the keynote speaker at the 2020 Rights & Responsibilities of Institutional Investors Forum. Vice President Gore delivered the keynote session at the very first Forum 15 years ago. Even then he was a forward-looking, prominent thinker and speaker on the rapidly emerging issues of governance and ESG – issues which have only strengthened in their importance over the intervening decade and a half.

Former Vice President Al Gore is the cofounder and chairman of Generation Investment Management, and the founder and chairman of The Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis. Vice President Gore is the author of the #1 New York Times best-sellers An Inconvenient Truth and The Assault on Reason, and the best-sellers Earth in the Balance, Our Choice: A Plan To Solve the Climate Crisis, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change, and most recently, The New York Times best-seller An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

Now, at this critical juncture in the discussion over climate and investors’ role in affecting change, we are privileged to welcome back Vice President Gore, one of the foremost and prominent authorities on this all-important issue to address the 15th Annual Rights & Responsibilities of Institutional Investors Forum, March 5 in Amsterdam.
