Sustainable investing has evolved over the years and the trend will likely continue as the marketplace develops further. Today, we see a positive momentum around an investment approach that integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices into investors’ portfolios to create long-term positive benefit for the society.

On the upcoming webcast, The Untapped Potential of ESG Investing, Tom Lydon, editor and publisher of ETF Trends will moderate a discussion of evolving investor attitudes towards sustainable investing and the potential benefits of ESG. For the many investors who want to bring their values to their investment decisions – including Millennials and women investors who have shown a particular interest in doing so – ESG investing can make good personal and good business sense.

The panelists will include:

  • Sharon French, Head of Beta Solutions at OppenheimerFunds
  • Matthew C. Straut, Head of Registered Investment Advisor Channel at OppenheimerFunds
  • Vincent T. Lowry, Lead Portfolio Manager of OppenheimerFunds’ Revenue Weighted Strategies
  • Michael Venuto, Co-Founder and CIO at Toroso Investments.

OppenheimerFunds recently introduced two ESG ETFs — the Oppenheimer ESG Revenue ETF (NYSEArca: ESGL) and Oppenheimer Global ESG Revenue ETF (NYSEArca: ESGF) – for investors looking to target companies with sound ESG principles.

Financial advisors who are interested in learning more about ESG investments can register for the Tuesday, December 13 webcast here.

Alternative weighting approaches (i.e., using revenues as a weighting measure), while designed to enhance potential returns, may not produce the desired results. The stocks of companies with favorable ESG practices may underperform the stock market as a whole.

Carefully consider fund investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Visit or call your advisor for a prospectus with this and other fund information. Read it carefully before investing.
