Asset management firms globally are moving to ESG and they are moving fast! Issues such as climate change, diversity, human rights, business ethics and corporate governance are at the forefront of public and political attention. Investors are increasingly demanding these issues to be factored into their portfolios, and Fund Managers are differentiating their services using environmental, social and governance criteria.
