SInv Webinar: Incorporating ESG into investment strategies

SInv Webinar: Incorporating ESG into investment strategies
Jun 28
15:00 2017

The sustainable and impact investment sector has grown significantly in the last few years. $8.72 trillion of assets now incorporate ESG factors in the US – 33 per cent more than in 2014.

However, ESG investment still needs a more robust structure and clear-cut regulations, as well as more established principles, in order to scale up further and appeal to more investors. Asset owners and asset managers need to enhance their understanding of how to incorporate ESG factors into their investment strategies while reducing risk and maximising profits.

This webinar, held ahead of the Sustainable Investment Forum 2017 in New York on 19 September, will gather influential representatives of the finance community to discuss their ESG strategies and how to successfully deliver portfolios that have a positive environmental impact.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday 28 June at 3pm GMT +1.
