ESG-related investing has recently been a key point of discussion in the financial services industry, and so has the Department of Labor’s proposed rule on the topic. In InvestmentNews, managing director Debbie George wrote, “Good analysts have been identifying and evaluating the financial impact (positive or negative) of environmental, social and governance issues as part of their proprietary deep dive into a company’s financials. What has changed over the last five to 10 years, however, is that these ESG-related matters have been named, aggregated and elevated, so they bore into the thought bubbles of both investors and investment analysts.”
