The Goldilocks Conundrum: Is ESG too little?

Impact Investing, and aligning investments with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, can be seen not only as a risk management tool, but also a source of returns. It can be argued the UN’s 17 goals – and their 169 sub-goals – map the future global megatrends of the next 10-20 years. Investors can’t afford to ignore them.

In this webinar UBP will debunk the myths and assumptions about Impact Investing, and analyse what investment in this area could mean for pension schemes’ portfolios, local authorities and corporate sponsors.

Please note that this PLSA webinar is only open to PLSA Fund members.
