ESG Integration into Manager Selection & Monitoring

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.

Speakers:
Andrew Collins, Director of ESG & Responsible Investing, City and County of San Francisco Retirement System
Tim Manuel, UK Head of Responsible Investment, Aon
Bernie Nelson, President of Style Analytics North America

  • Islamic Finance and the Sustainable Development Goals: new opportunities Apr 23 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor
    With the UN Secretary General’s ‘Decade of Action’ on the SDGs now underway, this webinar will consider approaches to leverage the stability and availability of Islamic finance to achieve more. The Islamic finance sector is booming. From a market of just US$200 billion in 2003, the sector is expected to grow to over US$4 trillion in assets by 2030. Much of these funds originate in the majority Islamic countries in the Arab region, yet the investments are global in scope and impact. As Islamic finance scales up through the next decade across regions, this unique webinar will assess opportunities to better align Islamic finance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across asset classes. Join us to hear from experts on Islamic finance and the SDGs.

  • Why should investors care about ocean health? Mar 24 2020 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor in partnership with Credit Suisse
    The ocean - or blue - economy is expected to grow at twice the rate of the mainstream economy by 2030, and the economic value of global ocean assets is estimated to already be at over US$ 24 trillion, making the Blue Economy the seventh-largest economy by GDP globally. However, with ocean health and impacts tightly linked to the threats of climate change and other anthropogenic threats, such as over-fishing, habitat destruction and pollution, a large amount of capital is at risk. Are the world's investors aware of ocean-related risks to their portfolios, and are they acting on the opportunities provided by this emerging investment topic?

    Discussing the findings of RI and Credit Suisse’s market-first research study “Investors and the Blue Economy”, this webinar investigates whether the conditions exist for private capital to flow towards a sustainable use of the ocean. And if not, what needs to change.
  • The right climate for fixed income sustainability Mar 18 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Responsible Investor In partnership with FTSE Russell
    The sovereign debt market is one of the largest asset classes in the world, yet fixed income markets have typically lagged other asset classes in relation to ESG integration. As a result, sovereign debt investors are exposed to a range of climate change risks that are typically not well understood or incorporated into the investment process. Part of the challenge has been the lack of sustainable investment products and viable climate data across a number of areas. This unique webinar will address a number of issues for investors seeking to better integrate sustainability and climate risk considerations into their fixed income strategies:

    • Global emissions reduction trajectories by sector and country

    • The macroeconomic implications of climate change

    • How the FTSE World Government Bond Index (WGBI) is adjusted for climate risk

    • Updates on performance of the WGBI and the FTSE Climate Risk-Adjusted World Government Bond Index
  • ESG integration: investment constraint or alpha opportunity? Recorded: Feb 12 2020 62 mins
    Responsible Investor and Refinitiv
    This webinar will assess ESG data integration by global investors in managing risks and creating alpha across portfolios. The discussion will dig into Refinitiv’s ESG database covering more than 7,000 public companies across all markets to consider how investors are able to use this information across asset classes to boost returns and manage risk.

    As pressure grows for the integration of ESG factors into company valuation and sustainable and impact investing continues to attract more assets, the call to investors and corporates to address ESG data quality, consistency and accuracy becomes louder. Within these global trends, can ESG scores cut through the noise and boost long-term returns?

    Join us for this expert update on the state of the art in ESG integration across asset classes.

    Background

  • Sustainability Materiality: ESG Data Part 4 Recorded: Jan 29 2020 77 mins
    Responsible Investor
    The fourth and final webinar in this series will focus on defining materiality, consistency in application, ranking and focus of issues. It will cover the role and application of material risk in enterprise and societal risk assessment.


    Questions for discussion may include:
    Do material issues identified in sustainability assessments give a fair and true view of non-financial risks?
    What are the best standards to define materiality that ensure equanimity for all stakeholders?
    How does a company ensure that wider societal issues are also considered and appropriately prioritised?
    How can companies and investors encourage a forward-thinking approach to these material issues?
    How can greater consistency in the application of ESG materiality be developed?
    In what ways can companies create greater visibility on evolving, longer term issues?
    How can the results of materiality assessments provide focus and opportunity for corporates to respond to longer term material issues?
    What are the ways investors can incentivise companies to follow a broader sustainability agenda?

  • Challenging and new data areas the “S” and the “G”: ESG Data Part 3 Recorded: Jan 23 2020 73 mins
    Responsible Investor
    The third webinar in this series will focus on how corporate data collection metrics, inclusions and exclusions, affect the weighting of governance and social indicators used by investors in determining the market value of a company. The webinar will also review how legal change is affecting the ability of companies to engage with investors and create common ground in the understanding and use of social and governance data.

    Questions for discussion may include:

    How are companies “S” and “G” data determined by investors when specific metrics are not available, comparable or consistent? What role can investors play in ensuring transparency through their engagement strategies?

    What are the challenges companies face generally and particularly in responding to new legislation requiring them to update their data identification and collection processes?

    How can companies improve the communication of their corporate governance structures, policies, and business practices to investor audiences?

    ESG applicable metrics for a number of areas e.g., for supply chain management, diversity and inclusion, ethical sourcing, plastics, and human capital, are still being developed. In the absence of comparable and clear metrics, how can companies be appropriately assessed by investors?

    How effective do investors and companies feel the New Corporate Governance Code and the New Stewardship Code has been in helping to improve engagement on “S” and “G” data?

  • Cleaning greenwashing out of asset management Recorded: Dec 16 2019 62 mins
    Responsible Investor
    Join us to learn why regulation and public naming-and-shaming means investors need to scrub up their sustainability strategies

    Gina Miller, the businesswoman and campaigner talks with Hugh Wheelan, co-founder and managing director at RI.
    ...

    Background

    While growing at an exponential rate, the green finance market is still in its infancy and is awash in mislabelled “sustainable” investment products. What is considered “green” varies from investor to investor and from bank to bank and across regions, both in terms of business clientele and financial offerings from the sector. As regulators across Europe, the UK and in North America increase pressure on investment managers to increase the transparency of financial product labelling.

    As countries get serious about net-zero emissions targets in line with the recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, pressure is growing for policymakers to mandate unified definitions of “green” finance and introduce compulsory disclosures.

    In a recent Morgan Stanley survey of institutional investors, 70% said they are integrating sustainable investing into their investment process, signalling just how quickly the environmental, social and governance (ESG) imperative is catching on. Despite this, the ESG narrative is dominated by asset managers and NGOs. Asset owners - pension funds, endowments, foundations and other large institutional investors - are generally kept in the dark as to what “sustainable” and “green” actually mean in the context of their investment funds.

    This webinar will ask tough questions about what a new wave of transparency in fund labelling and fee disclosure could mean for global investors who are committed to going green.

  • Debating the Green New Deal as an investor roadmap for the Americas Recorded: Nov 12 2019 60 mins
    Responsible Investor
    As the FT noted in a recent editorial: “The depressing reality about climate change is that we could solve the problem, at manageable cost, but are failing to do so. This failure is due to a mixture of blindness and self-deception.” Could the Green New Deal be a wake up call for North American investors? Join us for a debate on how North American investors are assessing and responding to the ambitious scale of the GND and the global energy transition.

    The Green New Deal is full of implications for investors - the plan would require massive investments and the leveraging of new funding for communities affected by climate change; the repairing and upgrading of crumbling infrastructure to withstand extreme weather and ensuring all legislation related to infrastructure address climate change; and a shift in capital away from fossil fuels into renewable power sources; investment in new manufacturing and industrial capacity to spur growth; and the build out of distributed power grids to provide affordable electricity across the continent.

    This webinar will consider implications of the Green New Deal for North America’s largest investors, and the risks and opportunities of a strategic approach to climate finance at the continental scale.

  • ESG data: Mind the gap part 1 Recorded: Nov 7 2019 62 mins
    Responsible Investor and the Investor Relations Society
    As pressure grows for the integration of ESG factors into company valuation and sustainable and impact investing continues to attract more funds, the call to investors and corporates to address ESG data quality, consistency and accuracy becomes louder. The gap in perspective of investors, corporates and industry practitioners to enable creation of a reliable pool data of ESG data is evident.

    In this 4 part webinar series, find out about the different perspectives of corporates, investors and actors on addressing the ESG Data quality, consistency and accuracy gap. We will explore their differing views and challenges and discuss solutions and offer best practice examples.

    ESG data, ratings and indices
    The first in the webinar series will focus on how ESG data is defined, constructed, communicated, compared and practically used.

    This webinar is presented in partnership with the Investor Relations Society. Newly appointed CEO, Laura Hayter, will give insight into some of the key findings and views from a recently conducted a survey ESG data and current practices. The Investor Relations Society has over 800 members representing European investor relations professionals.

    Questions include:
    What types of data do investors consider to be ESG data?
    Why is it a challenge for companies to produce ESG data?
    Is the incorporation of general ESG data from data providers sufficient to resolve long term information gaps ?
    How are ESG ratings and indices constructed and differ?
    How do rating and index providers attribute financial performance resulting from ESG practices not always tracked or reported on by companies and is it accounted for in ESG ratings and indices?

  • Investment strategy & frameworks for the low-carbon transition Recorded: Nov 5 2019 59 mins
    Responsible Investor and FTSE Russell
    This RI webinar will take a challenging look at changing approaches to investing in a low-carbon world. The discussion will clarify the debate over strategies that target the green economy or a low-carbon transition. Insurance giant AXA is now calling on companies to issue transition bonds as well as green ones and the EU taxonomy has been expanded to consider both green economic activity and those that enable the transition to net zero emissions.

    Canada’s Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance recommended the development of transition-linked asset classes to help decarbonise the economy. Can ongoing investor and government support for large fossil fuel producers actually accelerate decarbonisation, or is it time for investors to wind-up the most emissions intensive companies?

    All of these developments point to a broadening of the sustainable finance policy agenda to include fossil fuels and carbon-intensive industries. Is this sophisticated ‘greenwashing' on the part of investment professionals and policy advisors in countries who have large and influential fossil fuel sectors? Or is the incorporation of high-carbon companies into these strategies an authentic evolution in the way that investors and policymakers support the transition to net zero emissions?

    Speakers from FTSE Russell, AXA Investment Managers, and Scotiabank will address the question: 'should investors be broadening their investment universes to include the ‘climate transition’ when creating low-carbon investment products?'

    Speakers:

    David Harris, Group Head, Sustainable Business, London Stock Exchange Group
    & Head of Sustainable Investment, FTSE Russell

  • Stranded Plastics: Understanding and managing plastics risks in investments Recorded: Nov 4 2019 62 mins
    Responsible Investor and ISS ESG
    Plastics play an important role in modern life and economy. However, the associated waste - and the issue of marine plastic litter in particular - presents a mounting challenge for the environment and society.

    In light of the growing public concern about plastics, and recent policy initiatives, investors with exposure to companies across the plastics value chain are prone to stranded asset risks linked to financial losses and reputational damage in a range of industries impacted by a looming plastics phase-out.

    Investors have the opportunity to manage these risks if able to identify opportunities in innovative businesses and technologies, and encourage and monitor companies’ management of plastic-related challenges.

    This webinar will explain how ESG research, data and insights can support responsible investors in considering plastic waste-related risks and opportunities in their investment decisions. In addition, it will give an overview of the current status of the regulatory environment and developments, and explain how ESG data can enable investors to manage risks and source opportunities related to plastics by using the Solactive ISS ESG Beyond Plastic Waste Index.

    Expert speakers will explore the below topics:

    What are current problems and challenges caused by plastics and why should the issue rise up the investor agenda?
    What regulatory and policy initiatives are driving action on plastics?
    Actioning ESG data: How the Solactive ISS Beyond Plastic Waste Index can help investors identify the leaders in addressing plastic waste and manage plastics-related risks.
    Investor views: what are investors doing to address the mounting plastic pollution challenge and how can they improve their efforts?
