Interestingly, the theme that keeps emerging is Responsible Investment and Sustainability.

A Focus on Sustainability and Responsible Investment.

This week I’m hosting a morning workshop that is taking a close look at Sustainability and Responsible Investment. In advance of the workshop, delegates have been emailing questions that they would like to see covered. So far I’ve received questions about how to evaluate ESG funds, what are the benefits from divesting from Tobacco stocks, how to create a carbon neutral portfolio, and is all of this actually now a fiduciary responsibility for trustees?

This is such an important topic for pension funds to consider, and I’ll make sure to share a full set of all the questions discussed on mallowstreet.com later this week.
