ESG investing is a holistic approach to investing that incorporates critical environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into investment analysis and decision-making processes.

There is growing evidence that ESG-aligned funds perform at par with benchmark indices. Certain demographic groups such as millennials and women investors are asking for investments that are good for society and the environment, in addition to offering a portfolio return. Asia (excluding Japan), however, has the lowest percentage of ESG investing; less than 1% compared to Europe, Australia and New Zealand where over 50% of investment has an ESG lens.

Through this webinar, three Asia-Pacific investors shared how they have used multiple financial tools within their portfolios, including ESG Investment and impact investing, to maximise social and financial returns.
