Refinitiv Webinar: Good citizens? Analysing corporate behaviour in the context of COVID-19

by Lauren Tuck

A decade-long bull market has flattered companies as well as their investors: a rising tide lifts all boats. Conversely, as Warren Buffett puts it “you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out”. Thanks to the global pandemic that is COVID-19, the water is rapidly receding. This exposes firms’ governance frameworks as well as making it clear which firms take the “s” part of their ESG responsibilities seriously. Investors of all stripes need to keep a sharp eye on corporate behaviour: before, during and after this crisis.

On this webinar expert speakers will discuss:

  • What are the expectations of firms in the current context? How should they be treating staff and customers?
  • Which firms and industries are demonstrating resilience in the crisis and how does that correlate with sustainability?
  • Is the current crisis distracting firms and investors from a commitment to ESG?
  • Previous crises have exposed holes in corporate governance and major accouting scandals. What are the warning signs investors need to look out for?
