  • Cracking the ESG Code: Doing the Math from an Investors Perspective
    Cracking the ESG Code: Doing the Math from an Investors Perspective
    Elias Porse and Hugo Fredriksson Recorded: Oct 31 2018 37 mins
    As ESG performance has grown significantly in importance for companies and asset managers in recent years, it's time to look at the numbers.

    Is ESG screening a worthwhile tool? In a word, yes!

    High ESG focus contributes to risk mitigation and in this session, we will share with you our research which shows that this is also mirrored in strong operational and share price performance. We will also share how predictive attributes (e.g future earnings stability and share price volatility) suggest that ESG research belongs in company valuation.

    This live session (with Q&A) will give you insight into why we believe that companies and investors simply cannot afford not to care.

    Presented by;
    Elias Porse, Head of Strategy and Quant, Nordea Markets
    Hugo Fredriksson, Senior analyst, Nordea Markets
  • [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix
    [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix
    Richard Lightbound, Meryam Omi, Justin Simler, Adrie Heinsbroek Recorded: Oct 31 2018 63 mins
    A few years ago "ESG” was just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.

    This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return.

    While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF.

    Justin Simler, Independent Industry Expert
    Richard Lightbound, Managing Partner & CEO - EMEA, ROBO Global
    Adrie Heinsbroek, Head of Responsible Investing, NN Investment Partners

    Ben Yeoh, Senior Portfolio Manager, RBC Global Equity Recorded: Oct 30 2018 41 mins
    The debate surrounding the use of ESG tools and information is clearly favouring ESG as a tool for lower risk and enhancing return.

    We review;

    * the latest academic evidence on why ESG adds value
    * the latest frontiers of ESG, use of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)
    * debates on the imperfection of Sustainability Ratings and divestment campaigns
    * stewardship codes and increasing regulatory interest in ESG

    Impact funds: the gateway drug to investing differently
    Rod Schwartz, CEO and Founder, ClearlySo, and Harry Humphreys, Head of Fund Advisory, ClearlySo Recorded: Oct 17 2018 60 mins
    Many investors want to engage in impact investing and feel strongly about societal issues they want to try and solve. But most people don’t know where to start, what investment opportunities exist, and how to figure out what makes sense for them.

    To help listeners cut through the hype, we will offer some ideas about what funds and products are available, how to access them, some of the possible pitfalls and how to find an impact investment strategy that works. We will focus the discussion on impact funds in the context of trends for the impact sector as a whole.

    This webinar will cover:
    - Why does anybody invest in impact?
    - How to cut through the hype about impact investing? What can I actually do today that makes sense?
    - What are HNWIs, Family Offices, and Institutions investing in (investment themes, solving problems, asset classes, alignment)?
    - Why do people invest in impact funds? What are the trade-offs? What works and what doesn’t? What to look for in an Impact Fund?
    - Lots of specific examples
    - Q&A

    You’ll hopefully leave this webinar with a clearer view on how you can invest to solve the world’s biggest problems.

    All welcome to join.

  • Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times
    Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times
    John Redwood, Chief Global Strategist, Charles Stanley Recorded: Oct 16 2018 46 mins
    People with savings want to earn a decent return without running too much risk. Some have saved out of their earnings, some have built up capital in a business which they sell, some have inherited some money. None of them want to throw it away. In an era of ultra-low interest rates just putting it in a bank means the value of your capital goes down each year, as prices are rising faster than the return on a deposit. That’s why many conclude they do need to take some more risk, to own some shares and bonds that offer a higher income but can also go down in value.

    Investment managers need to maximise return for a given level of risk, and need to construct portfolios so not everything goes down at the same time if things do go wrong. This talk will examine how you spread your risks, and argues that over the longer term buying a portfolio of shares usually delivers a return above inflation, with a rising income from increasing dividends. Managers also are able to choose from a range of different countries with different currencies for their shares, and to look at the opportunities in commercial property as well. That can help find the right mix of return and risks.
