    Discussion: ESG Marketplace and Data Trends

    Underlying many of the sustainable investment trends of 2019 is the muddied waters of available transparent and objective data. Access to reliable and consistent analytic tools is essential to regulating the business of ESG investing, and is growing in importance as the industry begins to build momentum within this important investment trend. Escalating demand from investors and ramped up scrutiny from regulators are forcing asset managers and advisors alike to take a hard look at the analytic tools used to evaluate ESG investments. Join us for an in-depth discussion about the related pitfalls and challenges and learn how to reduce the ambiguity related to ESG investment processes.
