Please Join IPPFA for a Breakfast Seminar at the Union League of Chicago on September 7, 2018 starting at 8:00 AM.

Pension Funds and the Financial Impact of Environmental, Social, and Governance Issues.

Corporate financial performance can be impacted by how well companies manage material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. Issues such as human capital, resource use efficiency, and data security can affect a company’s competitive advantage and long-term financial success. Investors are therefore incorporating ESG analyses into their investment process in order to make better, more well-informed investment decisions with the aim of improving portfolio risk-adjusted returns.

This panel conversation will feature Mike Frerichs, Illinois State Treasurer, discussing how he is working to incorporate sustainability factors into the investment decision-making process in order to fulfill the Office’s fiduciary duty and maximize returns. The panel will also feature Maureen Ehrenberg, President of Global Integrated Facilities Management at commercial real estate firm JLL, sharing the ESG initiatives her company is focusing on in order to improve financial performance and thereby enhance shareholder value for clients as well as the company.

In a deal that could set a precedent for other financially struggling municipalities to follow, the city of Harvey has reached a deal with its police and firefighter pension funds to end a court fight over how much of the money Harvey gets from the state of Illinois the city should be allowed to spend on current day-to-day operations, rather than police and fire department retirees’ pensions.
