MSCI ESG Workshop - Getting Started: ESG Trends and Best Practices for Hedge Funds

Hedge Funds are faced with growing internal and external pressures to formalize their engagement on ESG issues. Together with the UNPRI and Mercer we will discuss common ESG drivers and market trends for these types of alternative investment strategies. We will also share our clients’ best practices in leveraging MSCI ESG Research solutions to support their ESG integration.

This workshop will be followed by further sessions on how ESG analysis and tools can be more concretely applied to different Hedge Fund strategies.

  • UNPRI - Hedge Fund ESG Trends and Approaches: a reflection on ESG integration drivers and market trends including guidance on forming an ESG Policy
  • Mercer - How Allocators Consider ESG in Hedge Fund Selection: a review of the factors considered when evaluating ESG in Hedge Funds and the opportunity to focus on ESG now
