[The Investors First Podcast, EP. 28]
Our guest today is John Streur, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calvert Research and Management, an investment management firm that specializes in responsible and sustainable investing across global capital markets.
Our episode today focuses on all things Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG). We discuss John's background and what led him to his position as CEO of Calvert, the history of ESG investing and how they implement ESG factors into their research, and the difference between exclusionary passive strategies relative to alpha seeking active management strategies. We also discuss ways you can learn more about the ESG space, as well as the new CFA Institute ESG certificate (born out of CFA United Kingdom), which will be helpful for anyone, whether you are an investor, advisor or consultant.
Our local co-host today is
