As responsible investment moves from values-based to value-creating approaches, the industry is experiencing increasing investor demand. Institutional investors, and long term universal owners in particular are interested in how ESG issues can impact company and investment performance, and influence in aggregate the long-term risk and return profile of investment portfolios.

Join us for an overview of the latest research on responsible investing strategies. The panels will examine the convergence around the materiality and resulting impact of ESG factors on investment performance and decisions on asset allocation.
