How are portfolio managers responding to demands for purpose driven by investors? How do analysts account for and evaluate corporate sustainability activities and board diversity when seeking undervalued securities?

Learn how environmental, social and governance considerations (ESG) add to the complexities of asset class selection, portfolio balance and achieving investment performance. Bring your questions and prepare to think about your clients’ portfolio (and your own) through the ESG lens.

The program will begin promptly at 5:30 PM; please allow time to get through building security and to register before the event begins. Those arriving after registration has closed will NOT be admitted and will be subject to a “No-Show Fee” (see below).
