Environmental, social, governance (ESG) investing continues its rise in the Canadian market, but for many advisors, there are still many unanswered questions around how we should measure and define it. There continues to be a lack of clarity on ESG terminology, inconsistent data, and ‘greenwashed’ products’ which have created more confusion and hesitancy. But mounting regulatory pressure means that this is an area that can no longer be ignored, and values are playing an increasingly important part in investing, even as some resistance has appeared in the form of anti-ESG ETFs.
WP’s Advisor Connect brings together advisors, portfolio managers, ESG advocates and ESG experts for an engaging discussion that delivers a comprehensive overview of the era of ESG investing and what it means for you and your portfolio. Join our experts as they tackle topics like understanding ESG terminology, the rise of ESG investing, values-based investing, portfolio construction, talking to clients about responsible investing, the carbon-free movement and how the industry can crack down on greenwashing.
