Cocktail Conference: The Intersection of Fintech and Responsible Investing
Sep 7 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

FSI Cocktail Conference: Please join us in kicking off our program for the 2017-2018 season under the theme Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data to the benefit of Responsible Investing!

Financial technology (fintech) is emerging as a core disruptor of every aspect of today’s financial system. At the same time, ESG considerations have been playing an increasingly important role for investors as they consider how to maximize risk-adjusted returns. Two particular aspects of fintech, AI and big data, have the potential to be especially consequential for sustainable and responsible investing.

Come join us for our Fall cocktail with special guest, Jan Christopher Arp, from FormFintech.

Please note that the conference will be held predominantly in French.
