CFA Society San Diego Webinar: ESG & Big Data with Sarah Bratton of Schroders

June 25, 2020
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


You're invited to join CFA Society San Diego for an interactive webinar on Thursday, June 25 from 2:00-3:00pm PT featuring Sarah Bratton, Head of Sustainability North America at Schroders. Join Mrs. Bratton as she explores ESG analysis and the importance of big data in factchecking, mitigating risks and unearthing opportunities.

Data is the new alpha. Traditional research can only take investors so far. Non-quantitative factors like ESG and those gleaned from data science are advancing the art (and science) of fundamental securities analysis. Schroders has been innovating and evolving ESG tools and data sets to enable investors to make better long term investment decisions. Please join us for a session focused on recent case studies highlighting how ESG data has resulted in better investment decisions, and learn how Schroders is using that data to report the impact of their investments.
