ESG Portfolio Integration

The business case for integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into asset management processes has become more apparent in the last few years. Asset managers, investor and lenders are integrating ESG considerations in their processes and strategies to better account for material risks or support key areas of focus e.g. women in business, Net Zero companies, limit climate risk exposure, etc. Due to the lack of standardization among terms, metrics, reporting frameworks, and regulatory clarity, ESG integration can be an initially daunting and complicated task, yet one that has become necessary.
