Amid growing demand for sustainable investing, the CFA Institute is launching a new ESG investing qualification.

The professional association announced it will offer a Certificate in ESG Investing, which was developed by CFA Society of the United Kingdom in 2019, in financial hubs around the world.

The group said that the new global qualification for ESG in investment management aims to teach certificants how to integrate material ESG factors into investment analysis.

The course is “also suitable for anyone looking to improve their understanding of ESG issues in functions such as sales and distribution, wealth management, product development, financial advice, consulting and risk,” the CFA Institute said.
