Like the Americas and the EMEA, there are developed and developing market economies in the APAC region. Related to material ESG and Impact factor analysis, however, the impression in the American and EMEA markets is that APAC economies trail the western developed economies in ESG and Impact integration strategies.
This despite data from the CFA Institute Global Perceptions of ESG Investing 2017 report, which found that 81% of CFAs in APAC markets consider corporate governance factors in company analysis, versus less than 60% in the Americas or EMEA markets.
In this live discussion with Q&A our panel of investment management experts will cover;
* What are the key performance indicators (KPI's) for corporate governance in the APAC markets
* What ESG factors do companies in the APAC markets provide to investors for analysis
* What other value-related factors should U.S. and EMEA advisors and investors consider when committing capital to APAC market funds
Join this session to explore where the value is in the APAC public, private and blended markets. This session will give you a reality check on the risk/reward dynamics in the APAC markets
