While responsible investing has been gaining traction among institutional investors for many years, individual investors and advisors continue to cite their unfamiliarity with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors as a major impediment to adoption.
One of the critical evolutions in responsible investing has been the move away from the practice of simply excluding a company’s securities because they fail to meet ESG criteria. Rather than limit investment opportunities by passively eliminating companies that don’t pass ESG screening, many in the industry are now pursuing financial results through the combination of systematic inclusion of ESG factors as a building block of the investment process and active ownership.
In this webinar on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET, Patrick Blais, Margaret Eve Childe and Vincent Zheng explain how ESG factors are integrated in portfolio design. They also explore important and emerging trends and the rise of global regulations – factors that are driving the shift towards a sustainable future.
This webinar is aimed at: advisors, asset owners, family offices, alternative managers, and wholesalers.
