In this episode, hosts Gabe Feghali and Dan Villalon explore many angles of ESG investing, or the consideration of environmental, social, and governance issues in investing decisions. George Serafeim, professor at Harvard Business School, discusses some of the unintended consequences of ESG, along with why and how investors use ESG. Lukasz Pomorski, Managing Director on AQR’s global stock selection team, explains why conventional implementations may not deliver a better risk-return profile, but suggests how investors might use ESG information to build more efficient portfolios. And Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment, talks about the future of ESG and the role of her organization as the “global hub of responsible investment.”
