Companies have begun to implement ESG practices to reshape how they create value. This value manifests itself through returns in the equity selection process, as valuation models emerge to demonstrate those returns for institutional investors who seek out companies with strong ESG practices and ratings.
The 2019 program will address topline issues in the ways that allocators select investments through fund managers and through the advice of investment consultants.
Full-day discussion will include information on financial evaluations, portfolio allocations and how investment experts create portfolios using ESG factors as core drivers of value. The program will also address benchmarking (using indexes and other vehicles) to manage risk, volatility and other considerations facing institutional investors today.
