Integrating ESG into Long-Term Equity Analysis

At Morningstar, we view analysis of ESG risks as essential for long-term investors. Our global team of equity analysts formally incorporate analysis of ESG risks into our research process in a way that aligns with our investment philosophy and long-term mandate, focussing on valuation, rather than values. This session explores Morningstar’s ESG integration process, including how we estimate probability and valuation materiality of related risks, the inclusion of ESG factors into Morningstar’s economic moat and uncertainty ratings, and collaboration with our internal partners at Sustainalytics.

Uncovering the mysteries of ESG

Thematic investing opportunities in China

China’s economic growth model is evolving. The transition to net zero, ‘common prosperity’ reforms, innovation and technological progress, and a growing private market space, should all help to provide investment opportunities for active investors in China. In this session, Fidelity’s investment experts will do a deep dive into the key themes they believe offer long-term return potential, and how ESG considerations play a pivotal role.

The future of investing in China

At Allianz Global Investors, we are of the view that China A shares have become a more structural allocation in many client portfolios. And looking ahead as confidence in China recovers, in addition to existing ‘core’ products, we believe attention will turn to ‘where next for the China growth story?’. While thematic investing has been popular within mainland China, so far there have been limited products available for global clients. We believe this is set to change and see significant opportunities for new actively-managed thematic products as the future for investing in China. Join our session to find out more.
