Throughout the year we have provided trustee training on integrating ESG considerations as part of their fiduciary duty across the UK.
We have organised specific client events focus on discussing how to integrate climate risk considerations into their investment portfolios in a variety of countries (Sweden, Copenhagen, Helsinki, the UK, the Middle East and France).
We have authored several papers to educate clients, including one looking at index-based ESG strategies and another on the challenges and opportunities presented by ESG investing in Emerging Markets. We have also spoken at various events to help trustees understand responsible investing and highlight the importance of considering ESG factors, as well as asset owner best practice across asset classes.
During the year we spoke about ESG at key client conferences in Japan, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands and the US.
We also hosted ongoing webinars on the Bright Talk and Asset TV platforms about the benefits of sustainable investing and how to incorporate ESG factors in investment.
