The power of a community and the wise crowd: ESG, China, Research, CPD Education

A Growing and Thriving Community

May was an incredibly active month on mallowstreet, with some of our strongest visit and viewing statistics to date. There were more posts in May (blogs, articles, white papers, videos, comments) than any other month so far this year. And, most importantly, a very warm welcome to the 50+ members who joined mallowstreet the same month.

The mallowstreet 2019 ESG Survey

This month we are asking community members to take 10 minutes to complete the mallowstreet 2019 ESG Survey. We have received almost 50 responses so far, and the survey will close at the end of the month. The preliminary results are fascinating, and we will be releasing summary results on mallowstreet later this summer. Take the survey today.

Top of mind for Trustees

The top search this month by the community was on China, which coincides with our first mallowstreet University China Dinner. The follow up conversation on mallowstreet has been fascinating, and it has been interesting to learn what are the key concerns of pension funds who are looking to expand their asset allocation framework to include China.

Technology and Development

The mallowstreet Developers have been hard at work making the site easier to use, and have recently introduced the ability to ‘agree’ or ‘disagree’ with any post or comment on mallowstreet. It is anonymous, and a very quick way to give fellow community members immediate feedback. Over the coming months you will notice changes to mallowstreet, including further enhancements to the CPD centre, along with new functionality to help you collaborate with your peers and trustee boards.
