ESG & Brands – A Future View

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) has been an investment portfolio product offering for some time now, and it’s moving into the mainstream as 85% of today’s consumers actively choose brands that align with their values. That’s why it’s critical to understand consumers’ views on ESG to judge the future potential of today’s brands.

Today’s financial services firms must adapt to survive and thrive in the new normal. Our recent Global Consumer Barometer highlighted that: 73% of people would like their savings and investments to align with their values; 64% would never invest in a product if it carried a detriment to sustainability; and environmental issues are the number one topic they expect brands to do more on.

Join us for our in-person event to hear from leading industry experts and discuss key ESG topics with industry peers over lunch. At the event, you will:
