Sustainable & Impact Investing has grown exponentially in interest and application in the U.S. over the past five years from investors of all sizes.  Despite that growth, two major challenges are holding back many-would be allocators: 1) confusion over the varied range
of terminology – SRI, Impact, ESG, Responsible – and 2) a lack of clarity on how and if they can allocate to this space in line with fiduciary obligations.  Hear from Glenmede’s Director of Sustainable Investing, Mark Hays, who will de-mystify the sustainable and impact investing landscape, provide guidance on how fiduciaries may seek to apply these investments in practice and provide a preview of what’s next in this emerging growth area.
