    Elias Porse and Hugo Fredriksson
    As ESG performance has grown significantly in importance for companies and asset managers in recent years, it's time to look at the numbers.

    Is ESG screening a worthwhile tool? In a word, yes!

    High ESG focus contributes to risk mitigation and in this session, we will share with you our research which shows that this is also mirrored in strong operational and share price performance. We will also share how predictive attributes (e.g future earnings stability and share price volatility) suggest that ESG research belongs in company valuation.

    This live session (with Q&A) will give you insight into why we believe that companies and investors simply cannot afford not to care.

  • [Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix Oct 31 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Richard Lightbound, Meryam Omi, Justin Simler, Adrie Heinsbroek
    A few years ago "ESG” was, at best, just a page at the back of a presentation. Today it has achieved greater prominence with new initiatives such as impact investing and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, questions still remain about what ESG integration really means and whether the increasing use of frameworks and questionnaires is distracting from engagement.

    This expert panel will look at what ESG integration means at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can, at best, be implemented without negatively impacting risk and return or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return. They will consider whether ESG is a factor like momentum or growth and if so whether it can be integrated into multi-factor portfolios.

    While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients are likely to have limited impact on the UN’s SDG’s. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment.

  • Managing Risks when Investing in Turbulent Times Recorded: Oct 16 2018 46 mins
    John Redwood, Chief Global Strategist, Charles Stanley
    People with savings want to earn a decent return without running too much risk. Some have saved out of their earnings, some have built up capital in a business which they sell, some have inherited some money. None of them want to throw it away. In an era of ultra-low interest rates just putting it in a bank means the value of your capital goes down each year, as prices are rising faster than the return on a deposit. That’s why many conclude they do need to take some more risk, to own some shares and bonds that offer a higher income but can also go down in value.

    Investment managers need to maximise return for a given level of risk, and need to construct portfolios so not everything goes down at the same time if things do go wrong. This talk will examine how you spread your risks, and argues that over the longer term buying a portfolio of shares usually delivers a return above inflation, with a rising income from increasing dividends. Managers also are able to choose from a range of different countries with different currencies for their shares, and to look at the opportunities in commercial property as well. That can help find the right mix of return and risks.
