Responsible Investment Summit

Welcome to the 2014 Responsible Investment Summit, the EVCA’s annual forum for policymakers, the private equity community and other representatives of European and global business to share ideas on what it means to be a responsible investor.

The private equity industry is at the heart of the global debate about how best to deliver long term, sustainable investment into companies and the wider economy and through this Summit brings together investors, fund managers and policymakers to reflect on how best to make this happen.

In 2014 the Summit will explore the latest developments in Europe following the publication of the European Commission’s Green Paper on Long Term Investment and its proposal to create European Long Term Investment Funds and will look ahead to the challenges that will be faced by the next European Parliament and Commission.

This is your opportunity to be part of that discussion, sharing your opinions and experiences with investors and policy makers active in this key area of EU policy.

The EVCA looks forward to seeing you in January!
