VIRTUAL EVENT

How Important is ESG to Capital Markets? Investor and Lender Perspectives

MARCH 18, 2021

Welcome

Major institutional investors, private equity firms, large banks, and bond rating agencies all talk – sometimes quite publicly – about their emphasis on ESG. And it’s clear that ESG shapes institutional investor voting policies.  But how does ESG actually play out in practice, when we look beyond voting policies, public statements, and green bonds? When and how does it shape the day-to-day investment and lending decisions in capital markets?

Join this webcast for a deep dive, from both an investor and lender perspective, as we examine the relationship between ESG and the cost of capital.

As an attendee of this webcast, you will:

  • Learn how ESG affects a company’s access to, and cost of, capital in equity and debt markets.
  • Understand how investors and lenders determine what ESG issues really matter to your firm.
  • Find out how you can best make the case for your firm in light of the emphasis on ESG.
