Webinar on ESG Investing

Thursday, 18 June 2020
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
    • Neville White, Head of Responsible & Sustainable Research, EdenTree

Overview

As we enter a potentially different social and working world and we see the impact on the environment that social distancing and lockdown can bring then we perhaps see the real benefit of ESG investing. Although ethical investing has been around for a very long time there have always been questions about the amount of return you might have to give up to fulfil your principles. During this webinar Neville White, Head of Responsible and Sustainable research at Eden Tree Investment Management will look at how we can align the requirements of the Environment, support society in a responsible and sustainable way and still make a financial return.
