Passive investing at the heart of the ESG transformation (Lyxor ETF)

During this Break Out Session, François Millet will take a closer look at how passive investing influences the ESG transformation that is taking place. He’ll provide a market update and look at the latest trends within the record inflows in ESG ETFs. There’s also the matter of the EU action plan and climate, requiring new indices at the heart of this transition. Then there’s the question on how ESG investing is impacting portfolio performance, which François also aims to address during his talk.
