Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic is posing a serious threat not only to our health but to the world economy in general. The way we invest in the future will significantly change once we enter a post COVID 19 world. Sustainable investments focusing on environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles have been proven to be resilient throughout this current phase of disruption outperforming other traditional asset classes. Join us in exploring how investing into ESG can potentially reverse the current economic downturn and create a more sustainable future.

InvesTAO, a China specialist fund selector/advisor, has first-hand experience of identifying and selecting the outperforming Chinese funds that have discernible Green strategy. The China Green Bond Fund, managed by Ping An Asset Management (HK), is a product worth highlighting for its unique investment strategy and ESG ethics.
