Raj Shant, Portfolio Manager, Global Equity, Newton Investment Management
In this session, we will explore whether investing sustainably is compatible with using your portfolio to generate an income, why we believe it is important not to strive for an unsustainable level of income, and how engagement with companies can lead to better outcomes for investors.We will outline three key considerations that fund managers should apply to all sustainable investments. These include analysing a company for both its economic durability and approach to material externalities such as climate change and use of plastics, and assessing its business model for risks, opportunities and a level of sustainability.

Robert Blood

Vocal and well organised activist groups are having an outsize effect on sustainability investment and on investment practice in general. Not only are they trying to drive sustainability criteria into mainstream investing, they are making entire asset classes toxic through intense negative campaigning. To avoid being swamped by the activist tsunami, we need to understand their agendas.
