Your special report covering the topic of ESG investing was quite thoughtful. However, if a company displays sound financials but has a low ESG score then should we consider investing in such a company? If yes, then should we invest for the short or long term?

Investing has evolved a lot in the last decade. Investors are not only interested in the end result but also the means to achieve it. Therefore, returns definitely matter but the portfolio also matters for many investors. As such, it is the personal preference of an investor regarding the path chosen to generate better returns. Our suggestion is to ignore such a company if you want to be a ‘responsible’ investor.
