FIFTH ANNUAL SUSTAINABLE INVESTING SEMINAR

As companies have become more environmentally and socially focused, sustainable investors are moving away from divestment and towards using ESG data to look for opportunities as well as moving into thematic and impact investing. New platforms continue to be developed to measure sustainability and provide more transparent and reliable data. However, work continues to standardize company reporting and educate both investors and advisors on the best way to use ESG data in constructing investment portfolios.

Join us for our fifth annual Sustainable Investing Seminar on Monday, November 13, 2017 as an impressive array of industry professionals present on topics that include engagement, fixed income and performance, and quantitative analysis. An underlying focus on data and its future direction in the industry will be present throughout all the presentations.
