The role of technology in developing a successful sustainable investment strategy
With Assets under Management (AuM) in ESG products growing every year, it is clear that sustainable investing is becoming a core investing strategy integral to global portfolio construction.
As integration of these strategies becomes the baseline expectation rather than a differentiator, investors are looking for increasingly sophisticated solutions which have demonstrable positive impact to ensure accountability and avoid greenwashing.
Measuring and reporting this impact is becoming an increasingly complex issue and ESG data continues to be hindered by a lack of standardization or common frameworks.
However, the pressure for transparency is only increasing. We can look to technology for help in solving this.
• Explore the drivers for a data-driven ESG strategy, from stakeholder demand to global policy and regulatory shifts.
• Understand the key challenges the industry faces in accessing quality data to support sophisticated analysis.
• Discover how cutting-edge solutions can deliver capabilities to overcome these limitations.
