The evolution of ESG investing: market insights, developments in ESG indices, and futures growth

About This Webinar

More and more investors are taking steps further to deepen ESG integration across their assets. As seen in what the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance and Green Deal aims to catalise, there is a need for further sophistication of sustainable finance products.

In this webinar, CME Group will discuss the evolution of the ESG investment ecosystem, recent improvements to the S&P 500 ESG Index, and performance updates on the growth/performance of their capital-efficient ESG derivative solution – S&P 500 ESG futures. Through conversations with Insight, Union, and Swedbank Robur, asset managers will share how ESG investing is affecting their asset allocation decisions and provide their outlook on the sustainable investment landscape.
