In this talk we cover the practicalities of implementing ESG within real asset investment decisions. Capital deployed in real assets is invested for a long term and has far reaching impact on the environment and society. However, implementing ESG into real asset investment decisions is not straightforward and requires a different approach to public market assets. The range of investment opportunities can be vast and across multiple private asset classes, sectors and geographies. Even within a specific asset class each asset is idiosyncratic and requires a very bespoke ESG assessment. Further, the answers are not always black and white and multiple factors need to be considered, ultimately needing one to find a balance between the expected positives and negatives over the lifetime of the asset. This session will provide senior managers and practitioners a good overview of the considerations when implementing ESG principles in real asset investment decisions.
