Policy update from UKSIF and Eurosif
On the 20th of June, Eurosif's Executive Director, Flavia Micilotta, joined member UKSIF's webinar to discuss recent policy developments at both UK and EU levels.
UKSIF's Policy Officer, Fergus Moffatt, discussed the results of the election, with Theresa May remaining Prime Minister – at least for the time being – with backing from the Democratic Unionist Party. There have been various changes to the ministerial line-up at both junior and senior level. This brief outlines some of those changes and, where available, the immediate priorities and views of key Government personnel on responsible investment and related issues.
Once the election had been covered, Flavia provided a brief summary of the Capital Markets Union Mid-Term Review and an update on the Commission's High Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance.
