ESG in emerging markets


The global economy is still dealing with the disruption from COVID-19. It prompted an unprecedented global government, public and private institutions response, unlike anything we’ve seen in decades.

This has brought a renewed focus of all players. i.e. investors, governments and corporations to speculate about its long-term political, economic, and social consequences, especially in emerging markets.

Companies that operate in these markets face a myriad of operating challenges, and management teams that respond to such challenges effectively can achieve superior financial performance over time.

This webinar will explore insights on the performance potential of integrating ESG within emerging market investment strategies, as well as the potential for risk diversification through investments in emerging markets.
