Different times call for different tools. Historically, measurable assets like market share, real estate, and production efficiency formed the basis for an investor’s thesis. Rich datasets were available and easy to consume. Now, more than 80 percent of the value of the S&P500 is estimated to come from intangible assets like brand, team, intellectual property or environmental impact. Debates abound as to if this shift has occurred because of macro secular trends or if it is due to a groundswell of individuals looking for both a reasonable financial return and sustainable impact. Yet, these same attributes are showing up not only in public equity investors’ strategies but in those deploying private equity, fixed income, and venture investor capital. Join us for a dynamic discussion on arguably the most important investment trend for this generation - sustainable investing - and what is needed to drive real-world outcomes today and in the future.
