Impact Investing: What is the Difference Between ESG and SRI?

Margaret Leung |

Investment professionals sometimes get caught up in acronyms: RI, SRI, ESG. They stand for real things— real stances on investing and real business approaches by companies. And they're not quite interchangeable, although they have some things in common. Margaret Leung of the global investment firm Nuveen joins René Nourse for a conversation about the ins, outs, and opportunities of “responsible investing,” “socially responsible investing,” and “environmental, social, and governance” investing, as well as other ways you can make an impact while also helping secure your own financial future.
