Responsible investing includes allocating to poor-ESG performing EM countries and helping them shift to greener solutions, instead of divesting completely, experts said.
The awards will be presented at our black-tie dinner which, this year, will be held at the Venetian in Macau on Friday, October 17. We will also reveal on the night our 'In Recognition of Service' Awards to individuals who have helped raise the bar for servicing the funds and institutional investment industry.
