[Panel] How to Integrate ESG as part of a successful asset mix

Presented by

Richard Lightbound, Meryam Omi, Justin Simler, Adrie Heinsbroek

About this talk

A few years ago "ESG” was 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 and at the practical implementation of ESG considerations within portfolios. They will discuss whether ESG can be implemented, at best, without negatively impacting returns or whether there is recent evidence that it can actually benefit both risk and return. While impact investing dominates the headlines, most of the assets that firms manage on behalf of their clients integrate an assessment of ESG factors into their process but do not tilt towards sustainable investments. The panel will discuss this issue and the likely future trends in ESG investment including how ESG fits in with the Mega trends defined by the PRI or WEF. Panellists Justin Simler, Independent Industry Expert Richard Lightbound, Managing Partner & CEO - EMEA, ROBO Global Adrie Heinsbroek, Head of Responsible Investing, NN Investment Partners Meryam Omi, Head of Sustainability & Responsible Investment Strategy, Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM)
