ESG and Employer Covenant – the forgotten child?

Regulatory, fiduciary and moral pressures have pushed ESG up the agenda for UK DB pension schemes. However, a critical component, the employer covenant, has yet to be considered in a significant way. To some extent, this key aspect has been forgotten and we will demonstrate why ESG should be considered as part of the employer covenant to identify and understand broader risks. At the end of the webinar, you will have a better understanding of the issues and a practical approach to help make a change.
