Integrating ESG into the Investment Process - Opportunities for South Africa, 27 Oct 2011
TOPIC: Integrating ESG into the Investment Process - Opportunities for South Africa. 4 international and local sustainable investment experts explain the opportunities in the southern African sub-continent together with MSCI.
The world of investment is changing: asset owners and managers are becoming increasingly aware of the potential risk and value impact of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, and their potential effect on an investment profile. But what's really involved in incorporating ESG factors into investment decisions? Can they make a material difference to investment performance? And just how do investors go about holding their investment managers to account for integrating ESG strategies into the investment decision process? AfricaSIF.org and MSCI cordially invites you to a webinar where our experts will address these questions and discuss how ESG factors can potentially add value or mitigate risk across an institutional investment portfolio.
SPEAKERS: 4 investors offer local/international alternative viewpoints on the subject.
DATE: Wednesday, 26 October 2011
TIME: 3PM - 4PM SAST = 9:00AM EDT (New York) = 2:00PM BST (London) = 3:00PM CEST (Paris) = 5:00PM GST (Dubai)
AUDIENCE: Open invitation to investors, stakeholders and all AfricaSIF members
