About this talk

Twenty years ago, investors mocked the launch of the first ESG focused index called FTSE4Good. But two decades later, interest in ESG indices is driving some of the biggest allocations of capital today. In the second episode of our new FTSE Russell Convenes series, FTSE Russell Americas Head of Sustainable Investment Tony Campos discusses what has changed since then, what’s driving markets’ and companies’ need for certainty, and what the world of sustainable investing might look like in 2026. Our FTSE Russell Convenes series brings together experts across finance, academia and government to discuss big trends like sustainable finance, digital assets and the evolution of investing.
