ESG Ratings

With the increased availability of ESG data, it is now possible to develop entirely new screening tools – not only at company level – but also on managed products such as investment funds, exchange traded funds etc. Investors are now able to evaluate how well their investment funds are managing the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk and opportunities. At the meeting, the speakers will discuss the new available screening tools for investors to create transparency regarding ESG in managed investment products.

What is the mechanism behind the ESG ratings?
How can you achieve good ratings?
How is the relation between ESG ratings and performance?
How can investors use ESG ratings in their investment process?
Which challenges arise from using ESG fund ratings?
