WEBINAR Cybersecurity: an ESG concern

Wednesday 14th April, 3pm GMT

On first glance, robust cybersecurity is a matter for IT and tech professionals to handle. However, on further inspection, the reputational risk of a cyber attack, on both manager and investors, means that cybersecurity is increasingly an ESG concern.

LPs are increasingly including cybersecurity into ESG questionnaires, while GPs are thinking more carefully about their technology providers and partners, ensuring they meet the same high levels of conduct when it comes to environmental, social, governance and diversity improvements.

Join us for an insightful and informative discussion, exploring the ever increasing convergence of cybersecurity and ESG within the private capital fund market.

Webinar: What do LPs do with all the data?

3pm GMT, 22nd April 2021

Data and reporting demands on GPs have never been higher, especially given the events of the past year, where communications between managers and investors have risen exponentially. On top of this, new rules around ESG disclosures, increased pressure on diversity and inclusion efforts as well as varying county-by-country accounting standards, means that the amount of data currently being ingested by LPs is at an all time high.

But what are LPs doing with all of this data?

This webinar discussion will explore what information is being transmitted from GPs to LPs, how it has developed in recent years, the way in which data is being communicated, how technology is helping both GPs and LPs, and of course, what LPs are doing with all the data.

Discussion points:
