Zengtao Wu attends the China SIF and delivers a speech: ESG’s Localization Strategy

On December 3, 2019, the 7th China Social Investment Forum was held in Grand Hyatt Beijing.

Beijing, China - December 10, 2019 —

On December 3, 2019, the 7th China Social Investment Forum was held in Grand Hyatt Beijing. Its theme is "advocating responsible investment and promoting two-way opening". Zengtao Wu, CMO of China Southern Asset Management Co., Ltd. delivered a speech at the forum, explaining the localization strategy of ESG.

According to overseas investment data compiled by the global organization for sustainable development, ESG investment in the five major regions of the world reached a total of US$ 30 trillion in 2018. However, in mature markets around the world, the return on ESG investment is only the same as MSCI index, while the return on emerging markets exceeds MSCI market index by 60%.

As one of the leading local fund companies in asset management in China, Southern Asset Management, has actively taken measures to promote the sustainable development of the company and society, mainly reflecting the following aspects:

1. Implement ESG principles in the company's operation and management. Southern Asset Management implemented electronic statement management earlier, promoted paperless office within the company, and actively participated in external public welfare activities.

2. Optimize the corporate governance structure. Southern Asset Management completed employee stock ownership in July 2019, with employees holding a total of 8.53% of the company's shares. A clear ownership structure will be conducive to the long-term development of the company.

3. Southern Asset Management continues to improve the company's corporate culture, embedding ESG investment concepts into the corporate culture-long-term investment, value investment and responsible investment.

4. Develop active ESG products and explore passive ESG products. Southern Asset Management's ESG investment philosophy integrates traditional financial analysis principles and provides customers with better investment returns while implementing ESG philosophy.

5. Southern Asset Management joined PRI last year and promised to abide by six principles and incorporate ESG into the whole investment process.

In the process of implementing ESG, Southern Asset Management will join hands with all parties to promote and persist for a long time, and it will certainly create a better future.

Jan 23, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent.

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Jan 23, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Jan 23, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
