Big Call: ESG Investors forum

Event Details

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing has exploded in recent years amid increasing regulatory pressure and a more socially-conscious investor set. Highlighting this, assets in sustainable investments have surged 34% since 2016 to over $30trn, according to the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA).

ESG ETFs have become a major focus for investors and issuers have responded by launching a slew of products. However, a lack of consistent data and a whole host of different ESG screens makes selecting the right ETF a tricky task. This event will explore the issues currently facing investors and the factors that will continue to drive the green revolution.
