This PRI course should become the standardised norm in the wealth management industry. A perfect introduction to responsible investing for all, concise and informative. ESG integration is not only beneficial for clients' long-term investments, but I believe it will eventually become a regulatory requirement.
Going through RI essentials made me realise that ESG has to be part of my practice and not considered as something separate. As a portfolio manager, I know now that environmental, societal and corporate governance has to be taken into account as a part of my asset allocation approach.
If you are an investment manager and would like to enhance your understanding regarding ESG valuation, the Enhanced Financial Analysis course is a good tool to help with that.
Prosperity has been an active investor and has employed environmental, social and especially corporate governance issues in its investment and engagement processes since its inception.

After spending a long time integrating ESG issues at the operational level and then at the strategic level of companies, the academy course helped me to understand how to integrate ESG at the investment level. It certainly broadened my horizons. The course includes fundamental understanding of ESG megatrends and strategies as well as real life cases and self-testing.
With a strong interest in 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.

A fantastic course with plenty of food for thought, suggested starting points and action plans for a hedge fund asset management firm that works hard to foster transparency about our activities in the space.
As a consulting environmental scientist working for decades in the environmental and social aspects of the ESGs - I really enjoyed learning about the corporate governance and financial modeling considerations. The course was very logically laid out and provided very practical advice. I especially appreciated the implementation process and strategies included. I will be recommending this course to employees and colleagues alike.
