In a new normal of volatile, unpredictable and rapidly changing economies and markets, many investors are grappling with maintaining momentum in their environmental, social and governance (ESG) journey. But beyond short-term asset re-pricing, balancing returns while integrating sustainability objectives should be at the core of portfolios, said speakers at “ESG: from niche to norm”, an event hosted by Natixis Investment Managers and AsianInvestor.
As the themes associated with ESG take centre stage across the globe, investors are demanding discernible and measurable impacts from asset managers, explains Natixis Investment Managers (Natixis IM).
As ESG is becoming the new pillar of asset allocation, major institutional investors in the region share insights on how to incorporate ESG in investments in a webinar organised by Natixis Investment Managers in partnership with AsianInvestor.
ESG is no passing fad, as more investors are convinced that alpha can be found in ESG and regulators continue to introduce rules to lift ESG standards.
