Your invitation: The power of ESG in investment portfolios

Join us on Thursday 10th June for an in-depth discussion around ESG.

The power of ESG in investment portfolios: Your invitation

Thursday 10th June 2021 10:00 – 11:30

The discussion will be chaired by sector expert Julia Dreblow, Founder of sriServices & Fund EcoMarket, who will be joined by expert speakers from Invesco, M&G Investments and Vala Capital.

Some of the questions that will be covered are:

  • Is there a difference between ESG investing and sustainable investing?
  • Is ESG/sustainability an asset class? Or is it something that applies to all asset classes?
  • What is the difference between negative screening and positive screening when Fund Managers select investments?
  • Why is it important to measure progress on ESG? And is that measurement at fund level or on an investment-by-investment basis?
  • Is there a concession on returns when investing for ESG or impact or sustainability?
  • How do ESG/sustainability considerations vary based on the stage of investment?

 

And, of course, there will be the opportunity to ask your own questions.
