  • 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
