Linda Benedetta Andreoletti, portfolio manager at the Quantitative Team of Pramerica SGR, will be also joining the panel discussion on ESG at the Thematic Forum Milan 2019 on 22 of November at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan.
Andreoletti joined the Quantitative Team of Pramerica in 2010 as a portfolio manager, where she is primarily responsible for managing multimanager portfolios by following a fund selection process based on a proprietary methodology.
With regards to socially responsible investing, Andreoletti is currently focusing on the research and analysis of the ESG trend, looking to define and develop sustainable investment products at her firm.
While the use of environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics was a niche activity a decade ago, issues ranging from climate change to gender pay gap have accelerated the integration of these parameters in investment portfolios.
ESG factors have become important considerations in the investment policies of all responsible asset owners. Once a niche investment interest, research shows that over 60% of institutional investors have incorporated ESG into their investment approach and sustainable principles underpin more than a quarter of global assets under management.
Speaking at the panel will also be Luca Anzola, head of fund research and due diligence at Fideuram's multimanager division. Moderated by Manuela Cedarmas of Tages Capital, the session aims to create a space for discussion on the different shades of the ESG trend and its role on investment.
The panel will address various topics including the different ways to integrate ESG factors in investment portfolios; how to overcome the challenges of implementing sustainable criteria in the fixed income space; how to measure the real impact of ESG investing across alternative investments; what shifts there have been, if any, in allocations towards ESG funds.
The event is supported by the CFA Society Italy as its educational partner.
