Climbing the ESG Learning Curve : Lessons Learned in Emerging Markets

The EMIA hosted an ESG Initiative call featuring Hardik Shah, ESG Practice Lead, and Niyati Dangi, ESG Analyst, from Grantham Mayo Van Otterloo (GMO). Hardik and Niyati discussed GMO’s approach to ESG integration and engagement. The event was moderated by Fergus McCormick, Director of Sovereign Research, Emerging Markets Investors Alliance and was exclusive to emerging markets investment professionals.

The ESG Initiative engages global and local institutional asset managers to discuss their approach to integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance factors into their investment frameworks. Asset managers also discuss how they advocate for particular outcomes or best practices with the governments or companies in which they invest.

EMIA welcomed our first Sellside Captain, Cristina Ameneiro, to the ESG Initiative. Cristina is an emerging markets equity salesperson at Citi in London. She will be working alongside Fergus McCormick and the other members of the ESGI team to bring you the insightful and meaningful dialogue on ESG implementation and integration in emerging markets.

Welcome, Cristina!
