ESG Investing for Performance and Impact
Featuring Olivia A. Albrecht, ESG and Fixed Income Strategist at PIMCO
Wednesday, June 6
Please join us for breakfast and an exciting presentation on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. The morning's topic will focus on how incorporating ESG factors may position portfolios for strong risk-adjusted returns while also promoting a sustainable evolution in the global economy. Our ESG expert from PIMCO, Olivia Albrecht, will discuss the following key areas:
- Why investors around the world are increasingly focused on ESG factors in their portfolio decisions.
- Sustainability is a key component of prudent risk management. Long-term global economic growth will be inextricably linked to sustainability factors, and investors focused on ESG are likely to be better positioned for higher risk-adjusted returns.
- Active engagement with issuers fosters meaningful progress toward sustainable goals – and PIMCO, as one of the world's premier fixed income managers, is helping lead the way in influencing positive change in global bond markets.
