With a strong interest for responsible investing, coming from the banking sector and joining the Engagement and ESG service provider GES International, it’s been important for me to learn more about the responsible investment space and practices. The PRI RI Fundamentals course have definitely helped me expand my knowledge base and take the next steps in my understanding of RI.

I thought this course was an excellent overview of current thought and analysis with respect to Responsible Investing. I liked the progression, with an over view to start and then in-depth consideration of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues. Highly recommended for those starting in RI, and a great refresher for those like me with more experience.
