Neville White, Head of RI Policy and Research at EdenTree Investment Management takes us through EdenTree's latest Amity Insight: Sustainability.
Sustainability and sustainable investing is becoming an increasingly dominant concept in the UK investment landscape. However, we believe this accelerated appetite brings with it challenges and risks; in particular, the problem of defining what sustainable investing really means and therefore potential for 'greenwash' and product mis-selling as new 'sustainable' products are rushed to market.
In this webcast we define what sustainable investing means to us at EdenTree.
