There was a time when environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues were the niche concern of a select group of investors who tended to have strong ethical or socially responsible views.
With times changing, many of us are now much more keen to consider ESG investment in our portfolios.
Our recent webinar explored what ESG investing means and why it’s become an increasingly relevant investment strategy.
The presentation touched on the development of ESG as an approach, and looked at whether it is becoming something which all investors should consider as part of their portfolios. Some of the ways in which companies and fund managers are approaching ESG investing were also reviewed.
Our speakers included Justine Leigh-Bell, Deputy CEO & Director of Market Development at the Climate Bonds Initiative, Andy Aitken, CEO & Co-Founder at Honest Mobile and Charlotte Yonge, Fund Manager at Troy Asset Management.
There is a definite sense that the time is now for ESG investment. If you are keen to incorporate ESG into your investment portfolio please contact your nearest office.
