About this talk

As sustainable investing moves into the mainstream of institutional investing many investors may be unsure why this once niche strand of portfolio construction has risen so rapidly in the rankings of investor consideration. Is it driven by values, global policy, or is it really about a pure investment rationale; enhancing returns and minimising risk? Or a mixture of all three? Join Dan Carson, Head of Green Solutions at FTSE Russell as he seeks to elaborate on some of the issues and drivers that have led to the increased popularity of sustainable investing; explaining why green taxonomies are important and how FTSE Russell’s Green Revenues data model can help asset owners identify the companies that are engaged in the global transition to a green economy. Dan will go on to demonstrate how Green Revenues data is used within index construction and how asset owners have successfully used sustainability data and smart beta to build index solutions that eloquently combine risk premia with varying degrees of sustainable preference or parameters.
