About this talk

Breakout 2B: Strategic asset allocation: the new frontier for responsible investment The PRI has recently published a series of case studies that provide some real life examples of Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) and ESG in practice. How ESG themes such as changing technology, governance, demography and climate themes are incorporated into SAA is a key challenge – but a challenge with significant opportunities. This session will review some examples of real practice and review the three areas highlighted in a recent PRI discussion paper: incorporating real world impact, improving risk adjusted returns and education. Through SAA, allocating capital towards financing real-world outcomes can make critical contributions to the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. Speakers: Christian Goldsmith, Lead Portfolio Specialist, Global Balanced Risk Control, Morgan Stanley Dave McGowan, Director of Strategic Asset Allocation, BCI Bob Smith, President & CIO, Sage Advisory Andria Weil, Managing Director and Sustainable Investment Policy Manager, Wellington Management Company Moderator: Toby Belsom, Director of Investment Practices, PRI
