2016 ESG Trends to Watch
In our annual trends to watch report, we highlight the key ESG trends that are top of mind for investors going into the New Year. As we enter into 2016 on the back of the Paris Climate Agreement and in anticipation of rising interest rates, we outline five trends to watch including: identifying risks and opportunities in the high yield bond market, the market for YieldCos, greater transparency for wealth managers, the use of “beta” engagement by asset owners, and the growing shift in attention on income inequality and links to economic growth. Hear the authors of the report, including MSCI’s Global Head of ESG Research, Linda-Eling Lee, to kick start your year with an overview of the report.
