Bootcamp Overview
CFA Society Toronto is pleased to offer a uniquely designed ESG Bootcamp for portfolio managers, analysts and other investment industry professionals who are in early stages of seeking to improve their working knowledge of ESG integration and how to apply it.

Join us for three, three‐hour interactive virtual sessions (2.5 PL credits per session) that will provide the real-world fundamentals to understanding ESG. The sessions will be facilitated by ESG Global Advisors, a firm with extensive experience with ESG. In addition, each session will feature a leading practitioner guest speaker who is spearheading their own firms’ approach to ESG integration and climate change‐related issues.

The Bootcamp will provide examples of how ESG can be effectively integrated into the investment process and explain what is driving increased demand for these strategies and the connection to corporate performance. It will also explore the growing focus on climate change risks and opportunities for individual companies and across portfolios.
