P&I ESG Investing Breakfast Briefing - May 15, 2018
The 3rd annual Pensions & Investments ESG Investing Breakfast Briefing series begins Tuesday, May 15 at the Ritz Carlton Los Angeles. The Breakfast Briefings are designed to provide institutional investors with tools and strategies for incorporating ESG considerations into investment operations across the portfolio. Topics to be discussed include, accessing, managing and integrating ESG data; performance analysis tools and techniques; understanding ESG as a risk management tool; as well as using ESG considerations to improve financial as well as social returns. The Breakfast Briefings will also cover ESG considerations in specific asset classes.
ESG investing is being applied across asset classes and investment approaches. The debate over the performance impact of incorporating ESG considerations when investing in public equities has largely been answered with the acknowledgement that factoring in ESG contributes to a more holistic view of risk supportive of long-term performance. ClearBridge believes integrating ESG factors can lead investors toward higher quality equity investments with lower volatility and a more consistent returns that by their nature as large, global enterprises also male significant social and environmental impacts.
