Course description

ESG, Impact and Sustainable Investing

Today, Socially Responsible and Impact Investing is one of the fastest growing segments of the fund management industry and the growth is expected to accelerate. Institutional investors have realised that they have a duty to consider sustainability issues when they make investments. Corporate boards are also realising the need to define value beyond the narrow interests of shareholders and are embracing a broader fiduciary approach and including a wider range of stakeholders, from consumers and employees to communities, broader society and the environment.
