Events to date
We have held a number of well-attended international conferences on asset management on various topics. The theme of our latest conference was "Institutional Investors and Climate Risk". The line-up for the conference was an exciting mix of leading practitioners and academics. These included, Eugenia Unanyants-Jackson (Head of ESG Research, Allianz Global Investors), George S. Dallas (Policy Director, International Corporate Governance Network), Zacharias Sautner (Frankfurt School of Finance & Management), Bige Kahraman Alper (Saïd Business School, Oxford University), Anastasia Petraki (Head of Policy Research at Schroders ), Edward Baker (PRI Senior Specialist at Climate and Energy Transition) and Amir Amel-Zadeh (Saïd Business School, Oxford University).
Due to the strength and depth of our faculty in this area, we are able to deliver courses across all aspects of asset management. For over 20 years we have offered an MSc in Investment Management. Our programme is founded on three principles: academic rigor, relevant knowledge and an international orientation.
