ESG Investing has exploded in popularity over the past two years and we begin by looking at what sparked this, before moving onto whether momentum in ESG themed investing can continue.
There is attention paid to the need for all investing to become ESG investing, not only because of the positive outcomes of doing so, but the long term alpha ESG investing will provide.
With Green Energy investing and climate change undoubtedly the most pressing issue for the world currently, we explore subjects such as diversity and governance and their role in responsible investing.
We finish by breaking the E,S and the G in Environment, Social and Governance and which of the three are set for the greatest level of interest among the investment community over the next five years.
