In an ever-changing landscape for institutional investors, there is industry-wide acknowledgement of the increasingly important role that responsible investing plays in managing a well-diversified portfolio. More and more fiduciaries recognize that the incorporation of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk factors can materially impact portfolio risk and return as well as help bring the portfolio into closer alignment with an organization's mission and broader goals. With that, investors want to ensure they are investing responsibly and integrating ESG factors into their portfolios appropriately.

The difficulty lies in knowing how and where to begin. That is why we have created the Responsible investing roadmap—a practical guide to help you build a robust responsible investing framework for your investment program. We also share case studies illustrating these concepts in a real-world setting.
