ESG alpha, novel metrics and integration in the investment process

Causeway vice president and senior research analyst, Mo Khan, recently appeared on Investment Magazine’s Market Narrative podcast with Alex Proimos to discuss his work on ESG at Causeway. In the episode, Mo and Alex discuss the increased investor scrutiny on ESG issues over the past 10 years, the economic rationale between ESG and alpha, and the importance of developing an internal view of ESG factors and materiality. Also covered are topics such as how ESG differs at the stock-level versus integration at the portfolio-level, how ESG engagement can be viewed as an alternative to negative screens, standardization in ESG reporting, and the role of investor education and the sharing of research.
