FinTrack Professors’ Corner: ESG Data and Ratings
Jul 16 - Virtual Event

MIT Sloan Professor Roberto Rigobon and Professor Robert G. Eccles from the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford (MIT SB!) talk about their work on ESG data and ratings on FRIDAY, July 16 at 11AM-Noon PDT. 

Professor Rigobon and his team have been probing ESG ratings with their Aggregate Confusion research. His interests and methods have been informed by his work on development economics and monetary policy, often collaborating with governments in Latin America. Professor Eccles has long been studying the link between ESG performance and long-term financial performance. He has been a prominent and successful proponent of ESG integration into investment practices. 

Come to hear them explain their different approaches to ESG data/ratings. Bring your burning ESG and sustainable investing questions. Yang Ruan, senior data engineer at Truvalue Labs, a FactSet Company and Jason Escamilla, founder of IMPACTADVISOR, will moderate and get as many answers as possible.

After the event, we will leave the Zoom open for anyone who’d like to keep the conversation going! We will have breakout rooms on different ESG topics. Hopefully we can entice our speakers to stick around as well.


Per the CFA Institute:

“ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. Investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities”
