  • Sustainable Portfolio Trends and Research: How investors’ efforts to find alpha by expanding the set of inputs we use to identify outperformance to include sustainability‐oriented data sources. As capital shifts towards sustainability over the coming decade, active investors have an important role to play identifying specific opportunities and risks.
