Forest scene

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) lie front and centre in the index world says Rick Redding, the CEO of the not-for-profit Index Industry Association (IIA). “It’s what a lot of people are working on and where a lot of interesting work is being done trying to look at ESG in a much more sophisticated way.”

Last October’s annual global index survey, conducted by the IIA, reported that, fuelled by investor demand, there had been impressive growth and innovation in the ESG sector, up 13.85 per cent across equities and fixed income.
