CFA UK Conference: ESG Investing – The Practical Realities, London, 29 October 2019
Professor Elroy Dimson was a speaker at the CFA UK ESG Investing Conference on October 29th, 2019 in London.
Professor Dimson’s session at the event was on the topic of good practice in ESG stewardship and engagement. He has shared his research findings on “Active Ownership” and “Coordinated Engagements”, both written jointly with two colleagues, Oğuzhan Karakaş, University Senior Lecturer in Finance at the University of Cambridge and Xi Li, Associate Professor at London School of Economics.
In “Active Ownership”, which is published in the Review of Financial Studies, Professor Dimson and his co-authors analyse the history of a major asset owner who engages with US companies and find that stock prices of companies that were engaged, where the engagement was successful, went up and relative to the market, those engaged where there was no success did not decline, they just performed neutrally.
In “Coordinated Engagements”, which is a working paper, Professor Dimson and his co-authors analyse the dataset of coordinated engagements provided by the Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), and reveal the importance and tactics of collaborating with others to achieve common objectives.
You can hear more from Professor Elroy Dimson discussing his thoughts on good practice in ESG stewardship and engagement on the csuite podcast website.
Promoting Sustainable Finance Conference, Brussels, Belgium, 8-9 January 2019
On 8-9 January 2019, the European Commission’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) and the Community of Practice in Financial Research (CoPFiR) hosted an academic conference on Promoting Sustainable Finance at the European Commission in Brussels. The goal of the conference was to draw insight from academic research that address the challenges of mobilising financing for green and sustainable investments and for researchers to promote the exchange of ideas and knowledge between academics, professionals and policy makers.
Dr Oğuzhan Karakaş, Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and Fellow of the University’s Centre for Endowment Asset Management, chaired the session “Intuitional Investors” and presented a working paper entitled Coordinated Engagements, which he co-authored with Prof Elroy Dimson (University of Cambridge) and Dr Xi Li (London School of Economics).
Vaska Atta-Darkua, PhD candidate at Cambridge Judge Business School, also participated in the conference. Vaska chaired the session “Low carbon Indices & their design” and presented a working paper from her PhD thesis entitled Corporate Ethical Behaviours and Equity Value.
The two-day event consisted of a blend of panels and academic sessions in various subjects including Green Bonds & Green Banking, Low Carbon Transition & Activities, Institutional Investors and Ecolabels & Retail Investors.
