Integrating ESG in Fundamental and Financial Analysis

ESG has been thrust further into the spotlight during the pandemic as more investors are getting serious about sustainability, preferring to invest in companies which incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) into their business.

Fundamental analysts must now focus on parameters related to ESG, in addition to analysis of macroeconomic factors such as the state of the economy and industry conditions and microeconomic factors such as the effectiveness of the company’s management. While it is more common to factor in ESG elements through quantitative analysis, investors and analysts alike find it increasingly necessary to quantify and integrate ESG elements into financial forecasts and company valuation models. This is on top of financial variables from traditional sources of data.

Programme Objective

This programme will focus on the importance and methodology used in integrating quantifiable and material ESG elements into fundamental and financial analysis, the impact of ESG on forecasting as well as its use in valuation and ways in determining its sources of information.
