ESG Today: Implementing Change

Published: December 19. 2016

Professional investors increasingly understand the importance of integrating environmental, social and governance factors into their investment process. But at the same time, ESG investing suffers from a confusion of definitions and terminology, and there are competing methods of implementation, some at the security level, some at the asset class level. Jackie VanderBrug, managing director and investment strategist at Bank of America Global Wealth & Investment Management Chief Investment Office; Bruno Bertocci, senior portfolio manager and managing director at UBS Asset Management; and Tim Barron, chief investment officer at Segal RogersCasey, discuss advances in ESG in terms of impact, measurement and building customized solutions, and explain how integrating ESG factors can improve returns and reduce risk.
