The Next Generation of ESG/SRI Investing
About the Episode
Our topic today is ESG/SRI investing – one of the most important themes in the asset management industry over the last several years. One of the questions I will explore is whether the importance, history and culture of ESG at the asset manager firm level is more important than individual strategies. Indeed, greenwashing has become a serious issue, as advisors and asset managers need to understand which companies are making a genuine effort to implement meaningful ESG/SRI policies, and which ones have succeeded in putting a positive PR spin on their efforts.
