We are delighted to welcome Louisiana Salge of EQ for this face to face training workshop.

Session Overview:

This face to face presentation will aim to provide an overview of how to cater for sustainable clients in respect of Consumer Duty, including why you need to investigate any client’s sustainable preferences.

Louisiana will start by exploring the different approaches to sustainable investing and show how a one-size-fits-all approach to sustainable investing may not meet the requirements under Consumer Duty.

This presentation will set you up to help deliver good client outcomes, across financial and sustainable objectives.
