Navigating the Future ESG Landscape

January 26, 2021 | 10:00 A.M., EDT / 3:00 P.M., GMT

In recent years, ESG has grown rapidly and has become a key component in how firms manage risk, construct portfolios, design products, and engage with companies. Despite the ongoing rise in ESG investments and attention given to the topic, investors are still plagued by the challenges of finding the right data and integrating ESG into their processes. While the lack of standardization in ESG investing offers a challenge, it also allows investors to customize their application of ESG and uncover differentiated approaches that add value. As we grow our FactSet ecosystem, ESG content backed by smart technology, combined with sophisticated analytics, offers a compelling competitive advantage.

 

Join Vanessa Barnett, Global Head of ESG at FactSet, Hendrik Bartel, founder of Truvalue Labs, a FactSet company, and James Cardamone, VP of Client Solutions, as they discuss current trends and events that have spurred the development of our ESG solutions. They'll share our ESG strategy and 2021 plans for investing in content and technology that help our clients make crucial decisions, dive into the efficiency gains delivered by connected content, and offer transparency into data differentiators and use cases. Lastly, they will demonstrate how you can easily leverage ESG data within your portfolio analysis, risk, and reporting applications.
