Event Overview
Do these questions speak to you?
  • Why should asset owners care about DE&I integration into investment processes?
  • How could an LGBT+ lens be integrated into a DE&I investing approach?
  • Why does having an intersectional approach in DE&I and ESG investing matter?
  • How can we effectively overcome the issue of a lack of DE&I data?
  • What does trailblazing best practice look this in this area?
  • What practical tips and techniques can asset managers utilize to align returns objectives and DE&I societal impact aspirations?

Why this conversation matters?

In 2021, LGBT Great conducted a study exploring the state of LGBTQ+ lens investment strategies and we found the industry to be significantly lacking in this area. Only 12% of asset owners considered an LGBTQ+ lens when making investment decisions. When considering that just over 1 in 2 (53%) firms had adopted a gender lens for investment, there is significant room for improvement. 80% of investors acknowledged that their clients are interested in LGBTQ+ DE&I.

With that in mind and considering that the LGBTQ+ community has around USD 23 trillion in purchasing-power, there is not just an organisational imperative here but a very real opportunity for greater returns.

In the maturation of DE&I-sensitive investment strategies, the conversation needs to become (1) more nuanced around LGBT+ issues and strategies and (2) increasingly intersectional in focus. That is to say, individual lenses around gender identity, LGBT+, race and ethnicity, disability and neurodiversity should be included in the strategic investment planning and targeting of asset owners , fund managers and asset managers.
