Understanding ESG Frameworks, Metrics and Evolving Regulation
ESG and Impact Investing fall under the umbrella of Sustainable Investing. Already confused? With a little time and explanation from experts and practitioners, you will better understand this global trend. What once was about charity, non-profits, and exclusionary screening has grown to incorporate world-class asset managers, innovative boutique managers, and leading data and research financial institutions. It is not only for institutions and foundations. With the greatest wealth transfer ever upon us, along with the significant interest from women and millennials, it’s imperative to understand the opportunities and challenges.
Some key questions we will discuss are: What is ESG and Impact Investing? Is it possible to generate market-rate returns? How can you integrate ESG & Impact into alternative investments? What are some investable Impact themes? How can you measure a company’s resilience to long-term ESG risks? The build-out of Impact Investing and ESG is well underway. Join the conversation.
