Does looking at ESG add alpha? An independent view of the evidence
The conversation about ESG investing is gaining traction across markets. Clients no longer ask 'do you have an ESG strategy?' but rather 'do ESG high scores result in outperformance?' Collaborating with Empirical Research Partners, this webinar will showcase their findings on ESG, what factors show the strongest correlation and how they think asset owners and fund managers should be taking this forward.
Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, Schroders will be joined by Rochester ‘Rocky’ Cahan, CFA, the U.S. Portfolio Strategist at Empirical Research Partners LLC. Mr Cahan joined the firm in 2013 to focus on a broad spectrum of research topics ranging from bottom-up stock-selection to top-down macroeconomic analysis. In addition to his highly regarded practitioner research, Mr. Cahan has published a number of academic articles in top journals including The Journal of Empirical Finance, The Journal of Banking and Finance, and The Journal of Portfolio Management. Mr. Cahan received a double degree in Mathematical Physics and Finance from Massey University in New Zealand in 2003, and is also a CFA charterholder.

On this All Hallows' Eve edition of Schroders’ Sustainability Quarterly webinar, we look at ESG-indexing, and ESG within Emerging Markets, both areas that can potentially offer tricks & treats.
The combination of rising demand for index-based investment products and an increasing appetite for strategies based on ESG criteria has led to a sharp increase in ESG-branded products. We highlight a number of reasons why these simple, low-cost solutions may not provide either the financial or sustainability outcomes investors are likely to expect.
EM have tended to exhibit greater volatility than developed markets. Less stringent regulation, rapidly changing demographics and evolving policy environments can add to the uncertainty for EM investors. These issues are less likely to impact better managed, more sustainably run companies, in our view.
