Is your ESG offering a misselling risk? This innovative concept can resolve that risk

Wednesday 20 July 2022 09:00 - 10:00

Spaces available

This webinar will cover:

• Some background on the risks of misselling in an ESG context, including the DWS case

• Achieving positive impact is a strong antidote to the risks of greenwashing or ESG misselling, however this risks having a tension with fiduciary responsibilities

• This tension can be resolved with a concept called Universal Ownership

• Under Universal ownership, investors have an appetite to make a loss in order to achieve positive impact, and yet still have no compromise on their fiduciary responsibilities

• This talk will run through an example of a universal ownership model, which sets out the following real-world impacts of investor actions:

  • Investors force coal power plants to not be built
  • Quantification of how much real world benefit is incurred through averted social cost of carbon
  • How does this feed through to an asset portfolio of an insurer or pension scheme?
