The world of investing is changing. Investors today are faced with an unprecedented task of deciding how to manage their portfolios in the face of an increasingly complex and shifting global landscape. From environmental issues such as climate change and water scarcity, to the rise of populism and policy deregulation, the need to manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks has never been greater.

These global headwinds, coupled with the need to not only do good but do well, are leading investors to look for new ESG product solutions. Join MSCI ESG Research Executive Director and Head of ESG Research & Development Laura Nishikawa for a CETFA breakfast event to discuss the current drivers of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing, trends in global ESG adoption and solutions for fixed-income and equity asset managers and asset owners.
