Speaker Spotlight

Leveraging your ESG Strategy to manage a dynamic portfolio

In recent times approaches to ESG investing have evolved considerably. In the past, investors and asset owners viewed ESG as a constraint to portfolio performance, however, now they see it as a way to provide effective risk management and to seize investment opportunities. As a result of this shift, asset managers are being asked to offer ESG strategies that mimic or improve upon the risk-return profile of a standard portfolio.

Join this session as our discussion explores:

  • ESG integration in active investment
  • Highlight key trends in performance
  • Examine the impact of COVID-19 on ESG strategies and offer insights as to how ESG investment strategies will progress in 2021
