Mittwoch, 27. April 2022, 12:30 - 13:40 UHR



Referent(en): Sheila Ohlund

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are becoming an integral part of investment management.  The Certificate in ESG Investing is responding to client demand and regulatory developments. This presentation provides an overview of how to develop your expertise in ESG Investing. 

The CFA Institute Certificate in ESG Investing offers you both practical application and technical knowledge in the fast-growing field of ESG investing — an opportunity to both accelerate progress and demonstrate purpose.  This certificate is designed for investment practitioners who want to learn more about how to analyze and integrate material ESG factors into their day-to-day roles. It is suitable for anyone working in front or back offices and adjacent roles — including sales and distribution, wealth management, product development, financial advice, consulting, risk — as well as anyone looking to improve their understanding of ESG issues.

The certificate and learning materials were developed by leading practitioners for practitioners, and have been recognized by the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an independent body that seeks to encourage investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage business risks.
