Sustainable investing is very hot right now — but it is often misunderstood. Many investors think a sustainable agenda limits a portfolio to a narrow piece of the market. Conventional wisdom suggests that creating a sustainable equity portfolio is a restrictive exercise that involves screening out stocks and fishing in a condensed subset of the broader equity market. But both research and practice shows quite the opposite: many companies across a wide range of industries and countries are, in fact, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In this session, hear from leading experts about how to get the very best return on investments using sustainable investing — and why it works so well!
