Asking the big question: does ESG investing enhance returns?

Presented by

Whitney Sweeney, Duncan Lamont, Margot Von Aesch

About this talk

ESG has been much in the news of late, both with interest and skepticism. Beyond the need to properly define ESG and the spectrum of various approaches available to investors interested in sustainability, the key question that everyone wants to answer is whether such investing can enhance returns and how its impact can be quantified. Join us as Whitney Sweeney, Sustainability Investment Director, speaks with Duncan Lamont, Head of Strategic Research, and Margot Von Aesch, Head of Sustainable Investment Management, to discuss what academic research and observation tells us about how ESG investing affects returns, to explore whether sustainable companies trade on more expensive valuations, and to consider how this may create opportunities going forward.
