About ESG Factor Investing: Myth or Reality?

ESG Factor Investing: Myth or Reality?

Style factors and socially responsible (SRI) investment play an increasingly important role in the investment portfolio. As a trustee, you are expected to give direction to the investments. You are expected to be able to ask relevant questions and to have a grip on the risk profile of the investment portfolio. During this meeting, we aim to provide you with practical guidance with regard to a number of relevant questions:

  • What has 7 years of factor investing brought us? 
  • Is there such a thing as an ESG factor?
  • How does ESG relate to factor investing?
  • Which style factors are important in ESG?
  • How do you combine style factors and ESG and what benefits/disadvantages does this have?
  • Which benchmark can you use when integrating style factors and factor investing?
  • How do you implement factor investing in the various investment categories?

On Monday 11 November from 12.00 to 17.00 hrs. the following experts, among others, will answer these questions under the leadership of chairman Roland van den Brink, founder TrigNum:
