CFA Society Toronto ESG Bootcamp: Session 3


Hosted By: CFA Society Toronto
Level: General
Format: Online (Please note that all times are EDT)

Bootcamp Overview
CFA Society Toronto is pleased to introduce a uniquely designed ESG bootcamp for portfolio managers and analysts who are just beginning to explore ESG integration.

Join us for three, three‐hour interactive virtual sessions that will provide the 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 guest speaker from a leading practitioner 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. The possible implications of the current COVID‐19 pandemic will be explored throughout each session.

Session 3: Climate Change & the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
Keynote Speaker: Sarah Keyes, CPA, CA, Principal, ESG Global Advisors
Moderator: Sue Lemon, CFA, CEO, CFA Society Toronto
This session will explore the growing focus on climate change‐related investment risks and opportunities. It will explore the extent to which climate‐related risks and opportunities are being mispriced by financial markets and how investors can effectively respond. It provides an overview of the recommendations of the TCFD, including specific recommendations for asset owners and asset managers such as carbon foot printing. This session will feature Deborah Ng, Head of Responsible Investing and Director of Strategy and Risk for Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan who heads the Plan’s approach to climate strategy and risk.
