About this talk

ESG Investor Insights series - A Teach-in with investors: Part 1 - Investor Engagement What do companies need to know? The increasing number of ESG risks to investors alongside legislative impetus for ESG integration into investment and the development of themed sustainability strategies and products, means investors now regularly require companies to comprehensively report their ESG risks, opportunities and performance, and then discuss those factors with them via ‘investor-corporate engagement’ Investors say company ESG performance increasingly gives them insight into the quality of company management, the resilience of its products and processes, and its potential competitive advantage. But what does investor engagement shareholder activism and stewardship actually mean? What is the business case for doing so, and what outcomes are investors really seeking? How should companies respond? This teach-in will include an asset owner engagement case study, a review of a mainstream investment management shareholder campaign, and a hedge fund strategy. Speakers: Dr Stephen Barrie, Deputy Director, Church of England Pensions Board Peter van der Werf, Team Lead Engagement, Active Ownership, Robeco Joe Mares, Portfolio Manager, Trium Capital Moderator: Helen Wood-Gush, Senior ESG Consultant, Responsible Company
