Join George Michael Gerstein for a PLANSPONSOR Webinar: ESG Factors in Investment Selection

For several presidential administrations now, there has been some back and forth about the place for environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing in retirement plans. Last year, the DOL proposed controversial regulations seeming to suppress the use of ESG investments in retirement plans; however, when final regulations came out, the DOL’s stance was softened.

Join PLANSPONSOR and retirement industry sources for a webinar in which you will learn:

  • What the DOL’s latest regulations say about the use of ESG investments in retirement plans;
  • How retirement plan sponsors can abide by their fiduciary duties when making investment selections based on ESG factors;
  • The different ways plan sponsors can include ESG investments in retirement plans.

When: Thursday, March 18 at 2 p.m. ET

Panelists:

George Michael Gerstein, Fiduciary Governance Group Co-Chair, Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP

Neal Weaver, CEO and Co-Founder, Leafhouse Financial

Eraj Zaidi, Vice President, ESG Client Success at ISS ESG

Moderator:
