At the third annual Sohn Monaco Investment Conference, four European, three US and one Asian investment idea(s) were presented by eight fund managers. Two of these have offices in Monaco. The event, held at Monaco Yacht Club, was generously sponsored by Churchill Capital; Compagnie Monégasque de Banque; SSVL; Tavira and Monaco Asset Management. A number of other fund managers, allocators, family offices and other local companies also attended.
Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance & Economy, for the Principality of Monaco, opened the conference by explaining how ESG criteria can be applied to investing without sacrificing returns. Monaco has a green fund for sustainable initiatives inside Monaco and is also carrying out some impact investing outside the principality. This is part of a wider drive for sustainability, which has included CleanEquity Monaco, which HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco co-founded with Mungo Park; a new Global Award for Sustainability and a Global Green Investment Bank.
Two investment ideas presented were growth stories with an ESG angle.
