  • Charting a Sustainable Advantage - RBC GAM 2018 Responsible Investing Survey
    Charting a Sustainable Advantage - RBC GAM 2018 Responsible Investing Survey
    Panel of responsible investing experts from RBC Global Asset Management Recorded: Oct 2 2018 59 mins
    Adoption of responsible investing principles continues to grow at a steady pace. And new data indicates that the majority of institutional investors and consultants have shifted from asking whether to adopt environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles to instead looking at how to implement them.

    RBC Global Asset Management’s 2018 Responsible Investing Survey reveals the latest views, intentions and actions of institutional investors and consultants related to responsible investing and ESG. The survey reveals that ESG-based investing continued to steadily gain credibility and establish a solid position alongside other fundamental investment approaches. This trend is based on an increased level of acceptance about the merits of responsible investing, and an interest in applying its principles to more diverse asset classes, including fixed income and infrastructure.

    Please join us to learn results of this year’s survey and discuss the implications and impacts for institutional investors and the marketplace.
