Whether it is policy, technological or climactic change, companies face an onslaught of challenges that are happening sooner and more dramatically than many can anticipate. Investors in turn are looking for ways to position their portfolios to best navigate the uncertainty. In 2018, investors will: use ESG signals to help navigate the evolving size and shape of the emerging markets universe; expand their view of portfolio climate risk to macro exposures across asset classes; accelerate ESG integration into fixed income; look to alternative data sources to balance the growing volume of corporate sustainability disclosure; and increasingly seek opportunities to invest in talent quality.
