Fund Selector Asia, in partnership with ESG Clarity, is launching Spotlight On: ESG from 5-8 September 2022. It will end with a LIVE event (on September 8th) where we bring together a panel of fund selectors and managers to discuss their views as part of an interactive Q&A session.


Register now for the Spotlight On: ESG LIVE event – 8 September 2022

As assets re-price and investors grapple with the reality of today’s market environment, questions are emerging about the sustainability of sustainable investing. It is a pivotal time for ESG investment strategies.

Although the integration of ESG factors into investment processes has gained momentum within Asia over the past couple of years, it is still at a relatively early stage for many investors. Further, the challenges that portfolios face from rising interest rates, inflation, and geopolitical tension – among other dynamics – have weighed on the performance of ESG-compliant securities. This has cast a shadow over the appeal, and even relevance, of ESG investing.

In addition, investors are increasingly querying how they can address hurdles in data comparability, transparency, and reporting.

Spotlight On: ESG will provide a forum for experts to share their knowledge and understanding of the opportunities and the challenges in the ESG space.

Our partners will showcase their strategies and discuss innovation themes and the opportunities they offer investors, through a variety of multimedia collateral including:
