In this episode of Amplified, we join Lewis Grant, Senior Portfolio Manager, and Louise Dudley, Portfolio Manager, during one of their weekly catch-ups back at our head office. This week they look back at six years of Global Equity ESG: from the surge in data providers to an increased interest in the topic, they discuss how the ESG investing landscape has evolved.
Louise says: “The people at the top end of the financial food-chain have started to articulate how some climate-related financial risks should be taken into account, including scenario testing, thinking about green terminology and frameworks.”
While Lewis adds: “People on the streets care about this [climate change]. Millennials are showing increasing interest and school students are joining protests across the world. But we’re also getting support from the top down. There is an increasing focus and resources – and a reason to do this, which is a great message.”
