AUM in ESG passive strategies investments have grown rapidly in the last five years, but there is still debate over whether ESG is compatible with passive investing. This session will:

• look at the challenges – and opportunities – in considering ESG issues in passive strategies;
• consider the issues relating to index construction;
• cover frequently-asked questions about passive ESG strategies, with a focus on how to improve outcomes for asset owners.

This will be a workshop-style session, with moderated table discussions.
