100WF Lunch - Sustainability: The Future of Investing
Sustainable investing was once viewed as a trade-off between value and “values.” Yet today, it’s something investors can no longer afford to ignore. Kenza Akallal, Investment Researcher with BlackRock’s Sustainable Investing group will discuss what has changed, including the growing awareness that certain factors - often characterized as environmental, social and governance, or ESG - can be tied to a company’s long-term growth potential.

Bring your thoughts and questions about best practices and the future of sustainable investing to discuss over lunch.

Attendance is limited, so please RSVP promptly to reserve your place.
