Solving the ESG Challenge


By Pat Reilly  |  November 18, 2020

Last week, as part of our FINSIGHTS webcast series for the Canadian market, we hosted a webcast to discuss the ever-changing ESG landscape. Despite the ongoing rise in ESG investments and attention given to the topic, investors are still plagued by several challenges, including finding the right data providers, evolving regulatory trends emerging in different parts of the world, and a lack of standardization.

While 2020 has certainly been shaped by the changes brought upon us by COVID-19 and the U.S. elections, we’re still seeing the influence of broader, long-term trends. In this session, we provide an update on the political and regulatory landscape as well as the emergence of S (the social pillar in ESG) and other key themes dominating 2020.

To learn more about this topic as well as other key topics influencing the Canadian financial industry, register for the series.
