How to reconcile financial performance and ESG?

Presented by

Erik Christiansen, Scientific Beta | Eric Shirbini, Scientific Beta

About this talk

– ESG investment strategies are often marketed with claims that ESG can be a source of financial outperformance in terms of risk-adjusted returns. – In this webinar we will look into these claims and analyse whether alpha subsists once the drivers of financial performance of ESG and low carbon strategies are properly accounted for. – We will also discuss the best way – filtering or optimisation techniques – to combine ESG and climate goals with the two well-grounded sources of financial added value, exposure to rewarded factors and diversification of idiosyncratic risk. Speakers: – Erik Christiansen, ESG & Low Carbon Investment Specialist, Scientific Beta – Eric Shirbini, PhD, Global Research and Investment Solutions Director, Scientific Beta Moderated by: – Brendan Maton, IPE
