Investors and ESG Data

  • World Ballroom A, 23/F
  • 18 September 2019
  • 16:00-17:30 (BKK Time)

Investors increasingly integrate ESG factors into investment decisions. Between 2012 and 2016, ESG assets under management in Asia ex. Japan grew by 16%, spurred by the implementation of national stewardship codes and ESG disclosure requirements. But debate continues as to whether or not ESG can impact financial returns. In particular, the ESG data needed to guide investment decisions is increasingly scrutinized, with investors stating that the reliance on annual public disclosure leads to insights that are “too slow, and too late” to accurately inform. This session will look at changing investor needs in Asia, along with the value and potential pitfalls of ESG data.
