THE NEW BOTTOM LINE: ESG as a driver of investment strategy and performance

ESG has been described as “the new bottom line” by Goldman Sachs. It's hard to argue with that when there's $59 trillion committed to ESG integration via the PRI, and it's on the agenda at the G20 and the Bank of England. This RI Webinar with Thomson Reuters examines how incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes can mitigate portfolio risk and enhance performance.

Discussion and Q&A:
· Portfolio management in transition: long termism, carbon risk, ESG
· It’s all about performance: ESG as a driver of investment strategy and performance
· Shock protection: using ESG analysis to mitigate downside risks
· The importance of access to accurate and transparent data

  • ESG Integration into Manager Selection & Monitoring Sep 23 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Join us on 23 September at 4pm BST as we explore the topic of ESG integration in manager selection and monitoring. The webinar will feature industry experts from Aon and the San Francisco Employee’s Retirement System (SFERS).

    As the effects of climate change shape our world, investors are coming under increasing pressure to integrate ESG into their processes. For asset owners who rely on external managers, it is vital to be able to understand and monitor the integration process. For those selecting funds on behalf of their clients, it is important to validate how ESG is being incorporated and if it is being done on a consistent basis.

    Responsible Investor and Style Analytics are holding this webinar to discuss real examples of ESG integration, including a review of the key challenges faced and lessons learned from a public pension fund.

    The speakers will also explore how ESG approaches differ between the US and the UK, the tools and practices developed to select and monitor fund managers, and how the industry can look at ESG alongside other traditional factors.

    They will answer live audience questions at the end of the webinar.

    Andrew Collins, Director of ESG & Responsible Investing, City and County of San Francisco Retirement System

  • Banking on ESG: How will the banking sector adapt in an era of global volatility Sep 16 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor & MSCI
    Sustainable finance and ESG integration are fast becoming a global preoccupation for the banking sector. As ESG reporting shifts from niche to mainstream and begins to have balance sheet implications, investors are raising challenging questions on how ESG performance is assessed, managed, and reported on across core banking business units. From corporate governance and board composition to loan portfolio credit quality, new data is driving a shift in approach to ESG integration and reporting across jurisdictions.

    This unique webinar will dig into the details of how ESG risks and opportunities can have material impacts on bank balance sheets, investor returns and the long-term financial health of the global economy. The discussion will consider key ESG trends in the banking sector from the perspective of reporting banks, investors, and one of the world’s largest investment data analysts. Join us to learn how responsible investment and corporate governance policies are helping to raise professional and ethical banking standards, and how action on ESG themes is evolving in a time of market turbulence.

  • Global update on the future of sustainable finance Sep 5 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Responsible Investor is proud to present a new edition in our sustainable finance webinar series focused on the global implications of the European Commission’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan, with updates on developments in Asia and North America. Coming after the G7 meeting in Biarritz, France at the end of August, this webinar will unpack the implications of the sustainable finance regulatory agenda for global investors.

    As the world grapples with populist politics, worsening economic inequality, and the prospect of climate breakdown, this is a crucial time for sustainable finance policy to reorient global capital markets. Against a backdrop of macroeconomic risks, this unique webinar will consider how sustainable finance policy on three continents could impact the banking and asset management industries.

    With the European Commission leading action on new rules covering investment mandates, sustainability definitions and green finance fiscal policy tools, this webinar will reflect on ‘the HLEG-effect’. Speakers will consider how sustainable finance regulation coming out of Brussels and Beijing could impact investors in North America and other parts of the world.

  • Reflecting on the EU legislative changes in sustainable finance Recorded: Aug 19 2019 57 mins
    Responsible Investor and DVFA
    Reflecting on the EU legislative changes in sustainable finance: How organisations and individuals can master the educational challenge?


    - While the EU's Action Plan for Financing Sustainable Growth and it's Technical Expert Group have made exceptional progress towards creating a financial market infrastructure that is conducive to a truly sustainable financial market, the exceptional amount, ambition and execution of the work have also led to an unprecedented educational challenge in the sustainable finance space


    - Prof. Hoepner, one of only two TEG members appointed in personal capacity, will share his reflections on the significant progress to date as well as the long term ambitions for taxonomy, trajectory & co. and explain how these can contribute to a conflict-free Capitalism


    - He will furthermore contrast Friedman's intransparent definition of risk with Markowitz' transparent one and explain why full risk transparency is crucial to measure and understand the merits of sustainable investing. Prof Hoepner is convinced that any investor practicing full risk transparency and accurate return per unit of risk measurement will deliver superior performance for clients and fully understand Fuerer's credo that "unsustainable investing is non-economic".


    - Finally, Andreas will give some very practical tips how organisations and individuals can master this significant educational challenges, both the challenge resulting from the exceptional recent progress on the area of green finance as well as the challenge originating from decades of intransparent risk definitions and other misunderstandings of standard finance.
  • Investors & the Blue Economy Recorded: Jul 8 2019 61 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Turning the risk of system collapse into an investable opportunity

    Join us on this webinar to find out how investors are assessing ocean risks like acidification, biodiversity loss, and plastics pollution, and how leaders plan to align their portfolios with principles for a sustainable blue economy. Ahead of G20 and G7 meetings this summer, it is an important time for investors to discuss tools for mobilising private capital to support a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy. Speakers will also consider approaches to modelling the investment implications of the phase-out of fossil fuel-based plastics and other unsustainable activities.

    The transition from a conventional, extraction-focused ocean economy to a sustainable, climate-secure Blue Economy is a tremendous economic and investment opportunity for all investors. This unique webinar will bring together leading investors to debate the risks and opportunities for profiting from ocean resources in a sustainable manner while unlocking long-term value into the future.

  • Central bank action on climate risk & the energy transition- G20 investor update Recorded: Jul 1 2019 61 mins
    Responsible Investor
    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of central bank action on climate targets? Join us to find out.

    Following the G20 Osaka Summit, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy across G20 member states could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets committed to in the Paris Agreement.

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many G20 central banks are moving faster than the investment community. This webinar is a chance for the global investment community to better understand what’s in store and to discuss investor responses to the greening of central bank balance sheets.

  • Reconciling Low Carbon and Multifactor Investment Recorded: Jun 17 2019 61 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Low-carbon and multifactor investing have registered rapid growth in recent years but their combination in a single strategy represents a challenge as popular factors tilt portfolios towards carbon-related assets and carbon-intensive activities.

    In this webinar, Responsible Investor will hear from Frédéric Ducoulombier, ESG Director of Scientific Beta about a portfolio construction that is consistent with the support of the transition to a low carbon economy, materially reduces exposure to transition risks and protects scientifically validated sources of financial performance:

    - ESG incorporation philosophy protecting against greenwashing and datamining.

    - Decarbonisation approaches incentivising the transition and reducing asset stranding and carbon intensity risks.

    - Construction steps delivering Low Carbon multi-smart factor indices with high resilience to transition risks and outperformance relative to market indices.

    Join the webinar and put your questions to the smart beta investment specialist.

    Responsible Investor
    From pioneering Clean Energy Bond programs to flexing their stewardship muscle on key social issues during the proxy season, public sector pensions are waking up to their influence in the capital markets. This unique webinar will explore the market power of public sector pension funds in accelerating the energy transition, enhancing corporate governance standards at the world’s largest corporations, and in addressing key social issues holding back economic growth - inequality and systematic under-investment in human capital development, clean energy and transport infrastructure.

  • Blended finance and the SDGs Recorded: Apr 30 2019 64 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Blended finance and the SDGs: examining how public and private capital can work together for positive societal and financial outcomes

    The OECD defines blended finance as “the strategic use of development finance for the mobilization of additional finance towards the SDGs in developing countries.”
    This RI webinar will drill down into key areas of the blended finance discussion.
    If achieving the SDGs requires a massive infrastructure build-out to provide clean water and sanitation (SDG6), affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and health centres and hospitals in urban and rural areas (SDG3), how can the blended finance of public and private money actually do this, and through what structures/terms?
    Expert speakers will present case studies on the integration of blended finance structures into existing investment strategies and explain how it can yield a positive return both for investors and communities.

  • Greening listed real estate - what you need to know Recorded: Dec 12 2018 60 mins
    Responsible Investor and FTSE Russell
    Join Responsible Investor and FTSE Russell for an interactive webinar on green real estate!

    Climate change poses clear and material risks to real estate assets with the potential to impact return profiles. Real estate investing has historically lacked the appropriate tools to allow investors to assess their exposure to climate risk and to integrate it effectively in their investment strategies.

    To help address this gap, FTSE Russell developed the FTSE EPRA Nareit Green Indexes to allow investors to identify real estate companies with strong sustainability performance. These indexes are a sustainability-focused extension to the FTSE EPRA Nareit Global Real Estate Index Series, a leading series of listed real estate benchmarks with approximately US$341billion of assets tracking this series.*

    * Data as of December 31, 2017 as reported on April 2, 2018 by eVestment for institutional assets, Morningstar for retail mutual funds, insurance products, and ETFs, and additional passive assets directly collected by FTSE Russell.

    · Listed Real Estate market trends in Developed markets, specifically Europe and North America
    · Facing the sustainable real estate challenge – what is important to know
    · The world’s largest asset class – addressing the investment data gaps
    · Real Estate Indexes have the ‘green’ light - case for integrating sustainability considerations in Real Estate benchmarks

  • 3 Year Anniversary of the SDGs: How Investors Are Measuring Impact Recorded: Nov 29 2018 61 mins
    Responsible Investor and ISS
    Three years ago, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global call to action for positive change. Ever since, the global investment community has become increasingly eager to achieve some kind of “SDG alignment”.

    Near the anniversary of the establishment of the SDGs, this RI/ISS-ESG webinar provides an overview of how impact investing connects to the SDGs, and how investors are measuring effectiveness.

    - What drives investors to choose the SDGs as a framework for investing and how are they approaching this?

    - What tools are available to identify and measure companies’ contributing to the SDGs? Should SDG investments be focusing on products & services or on companies’ operations?

    - What are the challenges to investing in the SDGs? Are the SDG even investable in mainstream investment, given the fact that many of the SDGs and targeting problems in emerging markets that are probably rather solved by modest projects rather than large listed corporates?

    - Is there a risk of SDG-washing and sticking SDG labels on existing mainstream investments? How can this be prevented?

  • How will the EU’s sustainable finance 'taxonomy' really work? Recorded: Oct 11 2018 75 mins
    Responsible Investor and PRI
    One of the most significant recommendations being pursued in the EU’s Action Plan is ‘to introduce a common sustainable finance taxonomy to ensure market consistency and clarity’.

    - In what way would it work?

    - How can such a taxonomy be both flexible and have integrity for identifying activities, assets and revenue segments that deliver on key sustainability goals?

    - How could the EU and its Member States apply relevant rules, and who would regulate them?

    - What would that mean outside of the EU?

  • A Stocktake on Emerging ESG Stewardship Themes: Spotlight on Climate Change Recorded: Oct 4 2018 60 mins
    Responsible Investor and ISS
    A successful ESG stewardship strategy requires investors to proactively address ESG risks in their portfolios. Over the last three years, climate change has become a top ESG shareholder proposal issue. Many shareholder proponents encourage companies to align their reporting with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, set GHG emission reduction targets, conduct 2°C scenario analyses and disclose on climate impact. However, the percentage of companies providing such disclosures remains generally very low.

    This webinar gives an overview of emerging climate change topics from the 2018 proxy season and how investors can proactively identify climate-related risks and opportunities in their portfolios.

    - What are the takeaways from the 2018 proxy season and Climate Week NYC 2018?

    - Are we any closer to meaningful scenario analysis?

    - How is data developing to help investors capture physical climate risk?

    - Where are we at with TCFD reporting?

    - How important is collaboration on these issues, through things like ClimateAction100+?
