CDP, GRI, SASB, ESG, what does it all mean when you are looking at evaluating a company? CDP gathers environmental data. GRI produces a reporting framework. SASB’s standards inform on materiality. Speakers will discuss these tools and how to use them to rate, rank and view your portfolios.

ESG ratings, factors and analysis are increasingly being integrated into corporate management decision-making, and portfolio manager investment strategies. However, there remains much debate on the materiality of ESG data. This panel will discuss these issues from three different but intertwined ESG perspectives – corporate sustainability, ESG ratings, and integration of ESG factors into portfolio management.
Do ESG factors add alpha? Are portfolios taking on unmanaged risks? How does modern portfolio theory handle ESG integration? This panel will look at quantitative methods of integrating ESG data into portfolio construction and risk optimization.
Leading practitioners offer practical, strategic approaches to ESG integration. Learn an alternative to modern portfolio theory supporting an evolutionary approach to asset allocation, and a portfolio construction framework leveraging new ESG data and screening tools to efficiently build portfolios. A longtime advisor shares about building portfolios with heart and soul.
