Presented by

About this talk

Environmental, societal and governance factors demonstrated their importance as drivers of value last year, as businesses with higher ESG ratings outperformed others in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis. At the same time, investor sentiment is evolving - as society becomes more concerned about the environment and social equity, demand for investment products that reflect the investor’s own convictions has skyrocketed. For wealth managers and financial advisors, there are various approaches that can be taken to capitalise on growing demand for ESG investing options. The challenge is in understanding the nuanced differences between these approaches and anticipating which strategy will best align with investors’ needs. In the first episode of BrightTALK’s new original series, “ESG Innovation Hub,” we’re inviting leaders from across the global wealth industry to share their insights on the business case for ESG and to present a roadmap to help you integrate impact into your investment strategy. Join this session to explore: - Assessing assets - what qualifies as ESG? - How to apply sustainable investing practices across the investment process and company operations - Differences between qualitative vs. quantitative analysis techniques - How to develop successful integration frameworks for ESG Speaker: - James Alexander, Chief Executive, UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association Hosted by Georgina Mitchell, Consultant, WellHouse Consulting
