RI INSIGHT / MSCI ESG Research Round Table 2014

The RI INSIGHT / MSCI ESG Research Round Table Report 2014 brings together a group of respected professionals in ESG research, institutional consultancy and portfolio management to examine the real-world applications for ESG research in the risk/return decisions made by investment managers. The issue of how sustainability-themed data can apply to investment strategy, risk management and stock selection and monitoring is one of the most important in responsible investment. It gets to the heart of issues like ESG materiality, terminology, structural and psychological resistance to ESG in mainstream investing, as well as the limitations of ESG in changing the current institutional investment landscape. It also points to how responsible investment might position itself to elicit more longterm consideration of sustainability within asset management.
