ESG Considerations in a COVID World, and Latest Trends in ESG Funds

COVID-19 has heightened institutional investors’ attention to ESG issues worldwide, such as workforce management and supply chain considerations. As more investors shift their assets into ESG funds in Asia, asset managers find it increasingly a necessity to practise ESG integration - considering ESG issues in investment analysis, risk assessment, and portfolio construction.

How should asset managers integrate ESG considerations into their portfolio? Which industries have been materially affected by the pandemic from an ESG perspective? What are some of the best practices in the asset management industry? What insights do the global and Asia flows provide?
