COURSE DETAILS

How to maximize your impact on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and stay competitive. In 2020, sustainable investing is a hotter than ever topic and it’s clear that finance professionals can no longer allow themselves to ignore environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues in their investment analysis and decisions. Treating your compliance with SDGs as a fig-leaf topic for marketing reasons is no longer possible.

Regulators are clear. In the years ahead, SDG compliance will not be another checklist exercise for boards, investment committees or portfolio managers. Professional investors cannot delegate their responsibility for understanding which impact they generate to rating agencies, ESG databases or external consultants. Simply put, being SDG-compliant offers an opportunity for investment decision makers to strengthen their comparative advantage through innovative specialization.

Narrative reporting not only enables investors to comply with regulation, but also to utilize the regulatory pressure for producing better investment decisions. Narrative reporting strengthens the comparative advantage of an investor through first principle thinking, investment narrative assessment and a causal understanding of capital markets. In this online course you will explore and test how to combine both, your SDG compliance, while increasing your competitiveness through narrative reporting.
