Global Director of Fundamental Research, Institutional Shareholder Services
ESG Analyst, Institutional Shareholder Services
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing has become very popular and for good reason: being good to the world is consistent with high levels of profitability. Similarly, Economic Value Added (EVA), or profits less the required return investors demand on capital, is viewed by many as a more representative way of evaluating a firm’s success than simply through earnings, and drives valuation. Both ESG and EVA are positively related to shareholder returns.
Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) is today the world’s leading provider of corporate governance and responsible investment solutions, market intelligence and fund services, and events and editorial content for institutional investors and corporations, globally. In this presentation members of the ISS ESG and ISS EVA teams will present an overview of the landscape of ESG investing through the lens of the Economic Value Added methodology. The two tools when brought together can offer very actionable insights to an investment decision process which can help to sustainably impact the world (for the better) and sustainably impact your portfolio returns (also for the better).
