HSBC Private Banking leads the way for CFG's Annual Conference 2021

CFG are delighted to announce that HSBC Private Banking, ORACLE NetSuite, Sarasin & Partners and SmartSimple are this year's Annual Conference sponsors.



CFG is delighted to announce that HSBC Private Banking is this year’s headline sponsor of the CFG Annual Conference 2021.

The four-day event will be held online between 11-14 October.

The theme for this year’s conference is Leading the Way – Effective, Inclusive, Resilient.

As well as being the 2021 headline sponsors, HSBC Private Banking will be presenting a session on how charities can lead the way in achieving net zero.

Sophie Ward, Head of Charities & Education, HSBC Private Banking, comments:

“At HSBC Private Banking, we believe that we have a responsibility to support charities in their pursuit of making society a better place. We advise and educate charities on investments so that you can achieve a sustainable future.

“The term ‘net zero’ is used a lot at the moment and refers to a future where we do not put any more emissions into the atmosphere than we take out. All sectors across the economy will need to reduce their emissions significantly by 2030 for net zero to be achieved. It is an important concept to understand, as it will create investment risks and opportunities for charitable investors, and can support both your fiduciary and social responsibility ambitions.

“We are delighted to be sponsoring the CFG Annual Conference this year as we see charities as ‘Leading the Way’ when considering how to use their investments to build a better future.

“If you have any questions in advance of the Annual Conference, please get in touch – we want to make sure our conference sessions are as useful as possible for you. I look forward to meeting many of you.”

The HSBC team will also be running sponsor clinics for delegates looking for guidance on HSBC’s offering which includes sustainable portfolio management; lending secured by investment portfolios; investment policies and trustee training.

Also sponsoring this year’s Annual Conference as the digital sponsor for the first time is SmartSimple Software Inc. And Sarasin & Partners and  ORACLE NetSuite return as lead sponsors.
