UVIC 2020 – the rise of ESG investing
30 October 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This year, via Zoom, the University of Virginia Investing Conference (UVIC) focuses attention in the role of ESG investing. We will provide an array of diverse, well-reasoned ideas and views on this vitally important, yet challenging, topic.
The investment world is rapidly moving towards one in which individual and institutional investors alike seek to blend environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into traditional investment evaluations. How can we invest in a more responsible way, and in doing so, make a real, positive impact on society?
Program speakers will detail approaches and ideas for how investors might position themselves to invest across several ESG parameters, including conservation and protection of the environment, relationships with employees, suppliers, clients, and communities, and standards for company leadership, risk controls, and stakeholder rights.
