Finances for Good Webseries | Responsible Investment

The new chapter of the Finanças do Bem webseries, “Responsible Investment” is now live!

“Companies with better social, environmental and governance (ESG) performance are, in general, more profitable and profitable, because there is a clear correlation between companies that adopt the best ESG practices and the best quality of the management team”, comments Alexandre Gazzotti, from Itaú Asset Management. 

For the Finance for Good agenda to be implemented, agents need to understand and analyze socio-environmental issues. This, however, is hampered by the lack of socio-environmental training of market professionals. 

“Once the professional starts to have ESG issues in their tools, they will start to analyze companies and businesses with a new lens. He will discover risks or opportunities that, despite having a socio-environmental bias, turn into financial risks or opportunities, that is, that can impact the return of these businesses”, explains Gustavo Pimentel, director of Sitawi.
