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.

Investors often have mixed views on the benefits of ESG engagement, especially within Big Industry sectors. As long-term stewards of client’s capital, our goal is to provide meaningful insights on our engagements with the aim of demonstrating how ESG research is good not only for investors in the form of improved stock prices, but how engagement may also prove beneficial for those companies willing to express change within their business models.
