Our next membership call, on Wednesday, July 13, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. Central (12:00 noon Eastern), features Susan Gary, Tim Coffin, and Lisa Schneider.
Topic: "ESG Investing: Environmental, Social and Governance Factors and the Prudent Investor Standard"
Can investments affect climate change or human rights? Financial analysts and managers who work with trustees to manage university endowments, pensions, charitable assets, and private trusts increasingly use environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in decision making. This discussion will cover:
- What ESG Investing is;
- Whether and how a trustee can avoid breaching fiduciary duties when using ESG investing; and
- The financial benefits of ESG Investing.
Please be sure to join us!
