Academic studies suggest that the UK has one of the highest levels of regional inequality among developed economies. However, this is not just an economic, or political issue. It is also a social issue, with studies suggesting that Covid-19 has only exacerbated these circumstances. 

Nick Montgomery, Head of UK Real Estate Investment at Schroders Capital will discuss the need to invest more in less affluent areas to address this inequality and support the government’s levelling-up agenda. And with Covid-19 accelerating a fundamental shift from investors towards strategies which generate a positive social and environmental impact, Nick will also share how it is possible to build a real estate portfolio that has the potential to deliver positive real return, both in a financial sense and in making a practical contribution to society and the environment.

This will be followed by a roundtable discussion with Q&A and shared insights, moderated by Karen Shackleton of Pensions for Purpose.
