Course description

Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance

The demand for ESG investing has seen explosive growth in recent years and now accounts for one of every four US dollars invested globally. Where once there was doubt about the level of returns that could be generated, there is now compelling evidence that integrating material ESG factors into the investment process consistently delivers high performance.

Large corporates whose shares are owned by large asset managers are already under pressure to change their ways, but it won’t be long before mid-cap companies receive similar levels of scrutiny.
