Cvent Transition Guide

Overview

Recent dramatic shifts in the investment landscape have defined new necessities for communities and businesses, driving demand for capital in particular infrastructure subsectors. As the pandemic subsides, certain trends such as energy transition, strengthening domestic supply chains, resiliency to climate change, and digitalization will continue to accelerate, even while communities return to normal. Join the CFA Society of New York for an afternoon of thoughtful discussion on infrastructure as an asset class and the future of infrastructure investing.

Integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into infrastructure investing will determine their stability and sustainability. Attendees from all disciplines are invited to learn more about the risks, opportunities, and wide-ranging impacts associated with infrastructure investing.
