September 17th 2020 Save the Date for one of the most worth experiencing events of the year.

Once again centred on sustainable finance, with a particular focus on the development of SDG-aligned investments, FFF20 (FARAD Finance Forum) distinguishes as a unique opportunity to get to know the major regulatory updates, legal framework and best practices examples from Luxembourg and European top players.

A new conference structure designed to present clear, straightforward key messages and takeaways matches with a different location in the heart of Luxembourg city – the Cercle Cité. From 8.30 to 18.30 authorities and keynote pitches will alternate to one-to-one short interviews and discussion sessions in one single main conference.

Central purpose of this year’s edition is redirecting mainstream capital flows to SDG-aligned investments via best practices sharing. 

The spotlight in the morning and early afternoon session will be set on finance and funds with interventions from representatives of the CSSF, Luxembourg For Finance and the Ministry of Economy.

Discussions will be focused on Green and Social Impact bonds, examples of SDG-focused investment strategies and the relation between Fintech and Sustainability, among others.

An overview of the insurance regulatory environment will then be proposed by Thierry Flamand, Partner at Deloitte, as the opening topic of the insurance-dedicated discussions. Further to the keynote pitch from Hermelo Bacani, Programme Leader, UNEP Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative, the relation between SDG factors and insurance companies’ corporate strategies will be on the table.

Before a final message from CAA, there will be ample room for discussion.

“While it is clear that financial and insurance industries are perfectly aware of the imperative (and performance benefits) provided by sustainable investments and products” states Marco Caldana, FARAD Group Chairman & Founderprogress towards achieving the 2030 United Nations Agenda remains slow. After an intense day of ESG-centered and engaging discussions we hope that attendees will be more inclined to develop and select SDG-aligned investments.”   

The event, organised by the independent B2B services platform and B-Corporation FARAD Group, with the cooperation of the Camera di Cormmercio Italo-Lussemburghese (, counts on the support of major players within Luxembourg banking and insurance sector and is proud to have Quintet Luxembourg Private Bank as event partner.

Some 300 representatives from banks, investment funds, asset management companies, law firms but also from European institutions attended last year’s edition. We are looking forward to welcoming them once again.
