I recently had the opportunity to attend and volunteer at the Boston CFA Society 2022 Sustainable Investing Conference. As an investment professional who practices ESG investing for clients’ portfolios daily, I found the event very informative. The conference covered a variety of topics in sustainable investing.

Your humble blogger has served in many a volunteer capacity and attended many a CFA related event at the society and institute level. They all have one thing in common: their production and content are first rate. This year’s GIPS® conference proved no different.

I recently passed the exam for the CFA Certificate in ESG Investing and thought I would pass along my thoughts to those who are currently studying and to those who are thinking about registering.
