About this talk

There is growing recognition that sustainability issues may have real and quantifiable financial implications. This marks a significant shift in the motivation to incorporate sustainable considerations into investment decisions. What began as a niche segment of investors divesting out of controversial businesses has moved to the mainstream. Today, global investors – ranging from large institutional investors to individual asset owners – are adopting a variety of sustainable strategies to achieve their investment outcomes. Whether targeting specific social and environmental objectives or enhancing long-term financial value, we believe sustainable investing is increasingly seen as a sensible investment approach. Today, there are more opportunities for investors to align their financial goals and sustainability goals across their total portfolio. Aligning these opportunities across asset classes and investment styles can be challenging.
