NOVEMBER 8, 2016 // BOSTON, MA – On Thursday, November 17th, the Boston Security Analysts Society will host its fourth full-day Sustainable Investing Seminar.
“Sustainable Investing” is often used interchangeably with the terms “Mission-based Investing,” “Green Investing,” “Impact Investing,” “SRI Investing,” “ESG Investing,” and “Ethical Investing.” No matter which term you use, interest in Sustainable Investing is growing. In fact, attendance at this annual event has grown year-over-year with an 85% increase since the first BSAS ESG Seminar in 2013.
Designed to help mainstream professionals navigate sustainable investing challenges, this event will bring together thought leaders, practitioners, asset managers and owners to provide practical advice to meet the needs of an ever-growing investor group demanding the integration of sustainable investing concepts.
The language, tools, and practices of sustainable investing are increasingly being applied in traditional investment environments. At the same time, a large and increasing variety of sustainable investment-focused offerings and products have become available to investors.
