  • ESG and Pensions: How Long-Term Thinking Will Drive Investment Success Recorded: Oct 29 2019 49 mins
    Blake Pontius, William Blair | Veronica Broomes | Alessia Falsarone, PineBridge | Derek Butcher, RBC GAM
    The ideal retirement or pension fund starts the drawdown phase only after decades of savings. Similarly, many benefits of ESG become more easily recognisable after multiple quarters or years. This long-term scope conflicts with wall street's penchant for quarterly earnings. Should short-term investors be thinking more like long-term investors? This webinar will discuss:

    - Methods of valuing ESG
    - Benefits of applying ESG decision frameworks to your portfolios
    - How Pension funds look at potential investments

    Moderated by - Veronica Broomes, CSR and Sustainability Consultant

    Alessia Falsarone, Managing Director of Portfolio Strategy and Risk and Head of Sustainable Investing for Developed Markets Fixed Income, PineBridge Investments

    Blake Pontius, CFA, Director of Sustainable Investing and Global Portfolio Specialist, William Blair Investment Management

  • Charting a Sustainable Advantage - RBC GAM 2018 Responsible Investing Survey Recorded: Oct 2 2018 59 mins
    Panel of responsible investing experts from RBC Global Asset Management
    Adoption of responsible investing principles continues to grow at a steady pace. And new data indicates that the majority of institutional investors and consultants have shifted from asking whether to adopt environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles to instead looking at how to implement them.

    RBC Global Asset Management’s 2018 Responsible Investing Survey reveals the latest views, intentions and actions of institutional investors and consultants related to responsible investing and ESG. The survey reveals that ESG-based investing continued to steadily gain credibility and establish a solid position alongside other fundamental investment approaches. This trend is based on an increased level of acceptance about the merits of responsible investing, and an interest in applying its principles to more diverse asset classes, including fixed income and infrastructure.

    Please join us to learn results of this year’s survey and discuss the implications and impacts for institutional investors and the marketplace.
