In this lecture, Prof. Rob Bauer defines and discusses the phenomenon of responsible investing.
Many institutional investors have created financial products in which they integrate non-financial information into the investment decision making process.
Bauer shows how this behavior can affect the pricing of securities on financial markets.
He also discusses the various ways in which investors can engage the companies they invest in.
