FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TBLI CONFERENCE™ Partners With Nexus Network
Amsterdam, 10 September, 2013 TBLI CONFERENCE™, the global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and impact investor forum for asset owners and managers, has partnered with Nexus Network, the largest network of next-generation investors and business leaders. The strategic partnership is designed to increase awareness of, and create greater money flows toward, sustainable investing, and will launch at TBLI CONFERENCE EUROPE in Zurich on 14-15 November.
“TBLI is one of the early pioneers in advocating investment strategies that go beyond financial returns, considering social and environmental impact too.” says Mr James Hurrell, Director of Nexus Europe. “This perfectly reflects the values of our members, who are current and future business leaders, innovators and change makers. Therefore, we’re delighted to be partnering with TBLI in Europe as we seek to increase the participation of young wealth creators and inheritors in socially responsible impact investing.”
At the upcoming TBLI CONFERENCE in Zurich, Switzerland, this November, TBLI and Nexus will present a special workshop called “Next Generation Dialogue”. Members of Nexus Network representing different generations will discuss their views and experience in responsible investing. According to Robert Rubinstein, founder and CEO of TBLI GROUP, the interest of Nexus’ members lies mainly in further exploring opportunities in impact investing and philanthropy. “By mobilizing such a large group to come to TBLI CONFERENCE, we will ultimately help to spur greater money flows towards sustainable investing”, says Rubinstein.
“The collaboration with Nexus Network is exceedingly important for the long term strategy of TBLI.” says Rubinstein. “TBLI has years of experience in educating asset owners who we see as the key to systemic change within the investment community. And we believe the next generation of investors is the catalyst for the future.”
Beyond the partnership for TBLI CONFERENCE EUROPE this fall, TBLI and Nexus Network are in the planning stages for a series of smaller events hosted throughout Europe and abroad, focused on ESG and Impact Investing. These events will continue the dialogue and will help achieve TBLI’s and Nexus Network’s vision of creating a sustainable economy based upon well being.
