Navigating ESG: What to Demand and What to Avoid



As the interest in environmental, social, and governance investing continues to grow, this session offers a look at current themes in how ESG is integrated into traditional asset management. In particular, the panel will discuss how products have evolved across asset class and how firms are developing more substantive metrics to measure impact. Panelists will also review how managers are exploring compensation structures, performance incentives, and overall client engagement to better incorporate new ESG factors and lead the global sustainable investment market.
