5 Things to Know About ESG Investing

To generate a long-term return, investors are required to correctly identify, evaluate, and price environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities.  

As conversations about environmental impact, equality and social justice, and geopolitical events become more and more a part of our everyday lives, it’s imperative that businesses address these challenges to remain competitive. As investors are increasingly using these factors to evaluate companies, the ESG investment strategy that factors in environmental, social and governance risks has become a $25.1 trillion marketplace and is only expected to grow. 

“Companies should become responsible businesses that generate profits to create societal value through innovations,” said Balbinder Singh Gill, Assistant Professor of Finance. “By focusing on something bigger than just the bottom line, everyone can benefit from what businesses have to offer.” 

Dr. Singh Gill is a member of the Center for Research toward Advancing Financial Technologies (CRAFT) and teaches international business and sustainable finance at Stevens. He is also active in the American Economic Association, European Finance Association, American Finance Association and Financial Management Association.
