ESG: Investing for Good or for Performance. Why Not Both?
A growing number of investors are interested in including Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into their portfolios.
In the past, ESG investing carried the criticism that its investors had to make certain concessions in order to align portfolios with their values. But research shows you don't have to sacrifice performance when choosing investments for their positive impact. By tapping into smarter data analysis, and insight on material ESG risks and opportunities, investing for good can become better for investors.
