The consideration of social aspects in investments has been an area of increased focus that has been reinforced by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Social criteria are very manifold and include issues like diversity, human capital, and the impact on the local population. Today, investors are putting an ever-increasing focus on engaging with companies on these criteria. Additionally, the regulatory environment raises the awareness on social considerations. But how can these aspects be integrated in the decision making and what are the challenges when tackling social issues?
In this discussion, the panelists will provide an overview of the important area of social criteria, trends in the market, and what implications this might have on the portfolio.
